Indigenous Women Rangers Talking - Sharing ideas and information about women rangers' work is a book by and for Indigenous women rangers, talking about their work, insights, challenges and inspirations.
We want to share our stories, lessons and strategies to make strong Indigenous women rangers who are good role models in the community and who are proud to look after country and culture. We want to show people that women rangers are doing good things for their country and community so we can get more women ranger jobs. This book also talks about what we need to make strong ranger groups and strong women rangers.
This book was made by women rangers working in remote parts of The Top End of the Northern Territory and Western Australia. However, women rangers around Australia tell similar stories and have some similar and some different issues. We have been to many Indigenous Ranger conferences and have heard these stories. Now we want to start writing them down for others to read and learn from.
