Mrs Robyn Presdee, Chaplain for Corrective Services NSW

“In my role as a Prison Chaplain at South Coast Correctional Centre, and personally as I identify as a Darug woman through my mother’s ancestry, I have seen a great need amongst Aboriginal families and the wider community to restore their cultural knowledge that has been lost, diminished or misplaced over time as a means to enable healing to take place individually and communally.

“I have found the publication MDBAM to be an essential teaching resource and invaluable in recording personal cultural knowledge to restore cultural identity, pride in and respect of culture.

“Every person, and there have been many that I have approached, without fail who have seen this book and turned the pages to explore the content have been in awe of what the publication contains and the capacity the book has to inspire one to explore and record who they are, where they come from, what is unique about their cultural story.”
