Growing Up in Boandik Country is a personal recount of Ken's time as a child exploring, hunting and fishing the coastline of his South Australian home of Port MacDonnell. Ken relives some beautiful memories of the many times he spent with his Dad and explains how fishing, hunting and trapping helped to sustain their livelihood. While living off the land and the ocean, Ken and his family still managed to maintain an important respect for the environment around them.

Ken Jones is a proud Boandik Elder from South Australia. Ken has always shown a keen interest in the importance of sustainability and the environment and his current work as an educator reinforces and extends this passion. His knowledge of Australian flora and fauna is extensive and his achievements are many and varied, including his award for 2019 NAIDOC Male Elder of the Year, Boandik Community.
