January 26 is a date that holds a heavy cultural and emotional load on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People. Culture is Life believes in the voices of our young people and the power of creative expression for healing and creating change. We acknowledge the guidance of our Elders who have and continue to advocate with love and belief in a better future.

"How I was taught was...they would glorify Captain Cook, he came here, we were convicts...they didn't really brush upon this brutal overtaking at all." - Suleiman "Sully" Enayatzada.

January 26 symbolises a whole range of things for #FirstNations people and the broader community. Reflecting on what it symbolises and reflecting on #truthtelling through these historic events is critical to our #healing and growth to move forward as a united peoples.

"Rottnest Island is where they would take Aboriginal men from all over Western Australia as prisoners. So it's the largest site for Aboriginal deaths in custody in Australia."

#TheAustralianWars is currently airing on @nitv_au. Ep 3 takes us to Wadjemup (Rottnest Island) with #Noongar Elder, Uncle Len Collard. A significant site and place in history that Culture Is Life's 2022 Fullaship Program was able to learn about and pay respects to. Have you watched the series?
