Summary Exploring western philosophies which have shifted down through time but have also held firm on key features that dominate, separate and shatter at the core I realised this was not us as I tried to "develop the right orientation to ourselves and our place first" (Meyer2003 : 60) as an Arabana udyurla. Thus, despite there being some opportunity here and there within these philosophic positions I turned to the Ularaka -- the Arabana worldview -- to consider methodology and method drawing from our ancient knowledge. The sun shone brightly. I was able to 'See...hear...feel and smell (take it in)' -- think. My approach shifted from a marking out of an Indigenous space within or being an addendum to western philosophies to understanding and therefore doing from an embodiment and embodying within the ontologies and cultural knowledge of the Ularaka. From here while in dialogue with and being 'grown' or mentored by key Elders, I could powerfully experience, engage and interpret 'data' from an Indigenous knowledge position.
