Sharing Culture was founded by husband and wife duo, Gadj and Jodie Maymuru

Gadj Maymuru - CEO and Co-Founder

Gadj is a Yolngu man who belongs to the Manggalili Clan. Born in Yirrkala, North East Arnhem land, he spent most of his life migrating between Yirrkala and his homeland Djarrakpi. While growing up, he was taught the old ways from his family and his environment. He was passed on the knowledge of how to survive, as his ancestors have for thousands of years, learning to hunt and live off the land.

Gadjs' schooling incorporated 'Two Way Learning', one of his teachers was the late Dr Yunupingu. 'Two Way Learning' is a combination of western and Indigenous knowledge, placing equal value on both ways. The Sharing Culture Teaching & Learning Program has been modeled on this method of education.

Jodie Maymuru – CEO and Co-founder

The computer programming and multi media has been developed by Jodie who also does most of the day to day operations of the business. Jodies' heritage stems from the New Zealand Maoris. Jodie left New Zealand when she was 5 and moved to Papua New Guinea where she continued a rich cultural upbringing, spending her childhood immersed in languages and traditions of PNG. Jodie moved back to Australia when she was 12 years old and has lived here ever since.

Jodie feels it is important to respect and understand how much knowledge Indigenous people have to offer and what can be learnt from them.
