The past defined where we are now. What we do next will define what we become. 

So much has been taken out of our control, the damage has been done. Now we are responsible for what is passed on to the next leaders 

I believe in the aspiration of the Assembly and I am passionate about Community having voices. We can create unity amongst ourselves. We as a people are the only ones that can pass on our customs and practices and demand the government respect our ways as we are still here. 

I believe we now have some solid structures in place and we will see the effects starting to roll out. This is our time to keep our culture strong and to lead the ways to continue our practices and to support the new leaders to care for Country and keep our traditions alive into the future.
