An immense wealth of knowledge, lived experience, creativity, empowerment, love and respect was shared. We paid respect and honoured our ancestors and the warriors who have fought for the equity and justice of our people for decades; those who have paved the way for the incredible opportunities we have been gifted through their determination and perseverance. We came together to be reminded that we, the new and emerging First Nations leaders, have power to affect change, to raise awareness and ultimately create a better future for our people.


 

A constitutionally enshrined Voice to parliament has the ability to provide a true and genuine representation of First Nations issues where it matters most, at the highest level of decision making that directly affects our lives, our communities and our future. The road to self determination has been long and we have grown weary. There will be many more times when we are disheartened and our spirits will be sore, but our people are resilient above all else and we will continue.

To say that this summit stoked the fire that burns in my soul is an understatement; this summit reignited the optimism that I had begun to lose, it restored hope in my heart that one day my children, my grandchildren and the descendants that follow will soak in our collective success and stand tall as proud black warriors thriving amongst our strong communities. I am privileged to have been a part of this summit, to represent my family and to have gained a new circle of inspirational brothers and sisters.

Love you mob – hit me up if you ever come Darwin way! Thank you to tiddas Bridget and Allira for their hard work in bringing us all together.

In northeast #Tasmania, #tebrakunna - #larapuna Country, we meet #trawlwulwuy woman Emma Lee. For the trawlwulwuy there’s no notion of humans as separate from anything else in nature: everything is connected by the thread of kinship.

#BackToNatureEducation materials explore concepts of #kinship and how #teachers can relate these themes into the #classroom for a deeper respect and understanding of people, culture and #Country.
