Our ancestors made that art you see on the rocks - guide Roy Banjo

This is our country. The place of our ancestors. You have to know that way to understand Aboriginal way. The land gives us what we need. Food, shelter, tradition, law, dance. They were put there in the dreaming. That way we live. All things work together: the land, the law, the culture, the heritage. That way things work.
