As a Ngugi Elder I am pleased to see our community come together to celebrate and share our culture on Country with island visitors here at Minjerriba (North Stradbroke Island).
It is a wonderful time for the Aboriginal peoples of Quandamooka with 2011 landmark Native Title decisions. With our proven capacity to endure through long periods of economic and social hardship, we are at the threshold of certainty in this new era. As a community we carry out responsibilities to Country that include building new economic structures such as cultural tourism.
Lines in the Sand presents opportunities for our community to share and celebrate culture.
