I'm a Kuku-Yalanji and Yidinjdji woman living on Yuggera land. I work in Higher Education to facilitate
pathways and create a supportive and culturally sensitive environment for our mob to thrive.

The Uluru Statement is important because it will protect our people, culture, land and rights.

This country needs truth telling because the stories and experiences I grew up learning about was
not taught in our schools or I dare say even cared about in society and even now in my 30’s I’m
having conversations with people that have no clue about our history or culture.

Having a voice is not only the right thing to do, but it is also logical, if you want real change, involve
us in the decision making and tell the truth, not only about our history but how our people are still
being treated and perceived.

We have had far too long to close the gap and to move forward. The time is now.
