She is an award-winning singer-songwriter and journalist, who has spent the past three decades committed to sharing stories and writing songs for her community, and with collaborator and best friend, Guy Ghouse. 


Gina’s accolades include: 2018 Inductee, West Australian Women’s Hall of Fame; Winner, Aboriginal Category, 2017 West Australian of the Year; and Winner, Indigenous Act of the Year, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2018 West Australian Music Industry (WAMi) Awards.

Natasha Short

Season 1, Ep. 104
This episode is proudly sponsored by Indigenous Business Australia who serves, partners and invests with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who want to own their own future.Natasha was born and raised in the East Kimberley and is passionate about positive social changes and righting injustices, of which she was aware of, from a very young age. She has lived most of her life in the Kimberley region and is familiar with the challenges. But at the same time, she is solutions-focused and positive about the future.She has spent the last 25 years working within the Community Development area and has over 20 years of experience in Event Management, often organising and speaking at small to large scale community events.Her passion for travel and experiencing new cultures began at the age of 20 when she first visited Indonesia. This allowed her to be introduced to new societies and gain a greater awareness and respect for the women in the world around her, and their strength. Further international travel opportunities gave her an appreciation of her own country, its privileges and a desire to share Australian Indigenous cultures with the world. Her interest in learning and sharing led her to organising two separate all Indigenous female teams to PNG (2013) and Zambia (2007) to share, where she was also the invited guest speaker on those occasions.As a descendant of the Jaru people, she is originally from Halls Creek but now lives on Miriwoong Gajerrong country in Kununurra, East Kimberley with her husband and teenage children.She feels strongly about creating social change and how women can influence the world for the better.Recommendations throughout this episode: www.iba.gov.auhttps://kimberleybirds.com.au/https://magandamakers.business/about/ Website: www.blackmagicwoman.com.auFollow us on Instagram - @blackmagicwomanpodcast The Black Magic Woman Podcast is hosted by Mundanara Bayles and is an uplifting conversational style program featuring mainly Aboriginal guests and explores issues of importance to Aboriginal people and communities.  Mundanara is guided by Aboriginal Terms of Reference and focusses more on who people are rather than on what they do. If you enjoyed this episode, please ‘Subscribe’ on Apple Podcasts or ‘Follow’ on your Spotify app and tell your friends and family about us!
