Sharing the Work and World of Indigenous Australians
Just like the water bird that provides nourishment for Aboriginal peoples, Magpie Goose Publishing aims to nourish the minds of generations to come. Magpie Goose Publishing combines an indigenous sense of community with a development program aimed at promoting educational aspirations and sharing the work of Aboriginal academics.
The Fejo-King Partnership
Magpie Goose Publishing is an initiative of Fejo-King Consulting – an Australian Aboriginally owned and run publishing venture. This small and growing business is foundational to a community development program designed to assist Aboriginal academics to publish their masters and PhD's.
Authors publishing through Magpie Goose Publishing retain the intellectual property and the integrity of their words. This is done with a view to laying stepping stones for those following to move through their educational aspirations more quickly and with the capacity to cite authors from within their own community and kinship networks.
Doctor Christine Fejo-King is the founder of Fejo-King Consulting and a leader in the Magpie Goose initiative. Christine is an Aboriginal woman from the Northern Territory of Australia and a senior Larrakia Elder. Her Father was a Larrakia man from Darwin and her Mother is a Warumunga woman from Tennant Creek.
Christine has been a social worker for more than 30 years and has worked in the areas of mental health, substance misuse, palliative care, education, community development and more. Her combined history as a successfully published academic and a respected Indigenous leader has driven the vision of Magpie Goose Publishing and the opportunity for Indigenous academics to share their expertise across the world.
