Aboriginal people have always had the ability to look after Country through cultural means. This can be facilitated through the recovery of language and traditions, art, dance, stories, traditional food and medicines. The collective knowledge and wisdom of our people is important for healing. Healing gives us back to ourselves, to sit still, calm our minds, listen to the universe and allow our spirits to dance on the wind and drift into the Dreaming. Healing ultimately gives us back to our country, to stand in our rightful place. Healing is not just about recovering what is lost or repairing what is broken. It is about embracing our life forces to create a new and vibrant fabric that keeps us grounded and connected.
