Raki Mala is a multi disciplinary cross-cultural team that provides truly innovative effective solutions for bridging the mainstream – indigenous communication gap. Our work as Indigenous consultants for the Yolgnu community of Arnhem Land and provides services for people and organisations in both government and business. Our services include language and culture translation services, government and business consultation, program development and implementation, secondary and tertiary indigenous studies and education programs, cultural awareness programs, consultation services, Indigenous business and association creation and development. We close the communication gap to achieve meaningful and functional understanding for both Yolgnu and Balanda.
We communicate not just in language but also in the local style using local concepts, meaning and shared experiences. In this way connections can be made and a more practical understanding is achieved. Negotiation, consultation, policy objectives and training are successful when both parties have clear understanding.
