The land is my mother and my mother is the land.
I shall be gentle with her.
The land is the starting point where it all began. Itís like picking up a piece of dirt and saying:
this is where I started and this is where Iíll go.
The land is our food, our identity, our vulnerability and our strength, our spirit, our culture.
I am the land and the land is me.
My bones, my blood
and my story are in the land.
