I have engaged the services of Cherie Johnson, from Speaking in Colour, on a number of occasions to deliver Aboriginal Cultural Capacity Training to Council staff and external organisation’s staff who work among the Aboriginal community...She engages participants by first asking what they want to learn and openly invites questions throughout the presentation. Her passion and cultural knowledge is displayed by her enthusiasm…I would highly recommend Cherie Johnson from Speaking in Colour as a quality educator of Aboriginal culture and heritage to any organisation.Aboriginal Community Development Officer, Lake Macquarie City Council
“Just letting you know the weaving workshop was a hit and the kids loved it. She did a wonderful job and gave some great information. Thanks for organising.”Teacher, Caves Beach Public School
"It was great having Cherie from Speaking in Colour at our TPL today. The discussion around the content of the Interwoven Aboriginal Kit promoted deeper knowledge and understanding of how to embed Aboriginal perspectives into a range of KLA's. We are looking forward to our follow up weaving workshop on NAIDOC Week as this will further consolidate our learning and understanding…We would highly recommend it other schools."Maryland PS 2017
“The weaving kit from Speaking In Colour is a wonderfully designed and well thought out resource providing ample supporting material in both a practical sense as well as a theoretical sense to enable teachers to implement an Aboriginal perspective into their teaching. The lesson plans are well structured and sequenced to provide a solid and user friendly basis to incorporate Aboriginal perspectives into a number of different key learning areas, whilst remaining flexible enough to allow the educator to use individual components of the kit to support the needs of their class and their current program. Overall, the weaving kit from Speaking In Colour is a great resource to use as a launch pad into implementing Aboriginal perspectives in a culturally sensitive manner.”Reading Recovery Teacher/Aboriginal Education Teacher, Tea Gardens Public School
“A fabulous resource that ensures Aboriginal perspectives are woven across the Key Learning Areas in a variety of different ways. “Assistant Principal, Coal Pt Public school
“This education kit will provide the core of our girls cultural program that we are developing at Singleton High School. It is refreshing to be able to use of work of Cherie whom I have known since she was a young school girl. Giving back to community has always been at the centre of Cherie's life. This kit helps our girls to reclaim culture that rightfully belongs to them. Thank you Cherie.”Head Teacher Aboriginal Education, Singleton High School
