[Extract] In this chapter I discuss my thoughts, feelings, critical reflections and new learning acquired through conversations, literature reviews, community engagement, mentoring and supervision. In particular, I reveal how learning from Indigenous People within the academy and in the community has provided essential teaching for me in my quest to provide safer learning spaces and more appropriate curriculum content for Indigenous social work students at James Cook University in North Queensland, Australia.
