Meet Mikaela Jade

Mikaela is a proud Cabrogal woman who founded Australia’s first Indigenous Edu-tech company, Indigital. Driven by her fascination with the natural world, she pursued environmental biology at university, deepening her understanding of nature’s workings. Her studies also introduced her to the profound connection between Indigenous people and their land. During her time as a Park Ranger, Mik delved into the stories and history of the National Park she worked in, which inspired her app concept. Mik’s app uses augmented reality to let Indigenous people share extraordinary stories about places, even when they’re not actually there. Mik’s career combines her love for nature, her passion for Indigenous culture and stories, and her innovative use of technology to foster connection and preserve heritage.
