This article came about because it was initially a workshop presented at the AAEGT biennial conference held in Darling Harbour, Sydney in 2010. I was asked to convert the workshop into an article. The 10 cultural identifiers for giftedness are an example of how to canvass community voice by asking the right questions – approach communities with research that surfaces their strengths and allows for rich dialogue and consensus that unifies an otherwise diverse group of peoples.
