NAIDOC week 2019

The longest occupation of any race in the world …
The longest isolation of any people from all the rest …
By far the greatest numbers of Australians who have ever lived
Have been members of the Aboriginal race …
Wandering … developing spirituality, not materially
Ceremonies, lore, kinship, sharing, settling, 47,000 years
Shattered … in 1788.

– Extract from We Walked on Sacred Ground by Judy Kenny
