Who or what inspires you?

I'm inspired by my ancient land and my Elders. I took this picture of "Kengal" which is a special area in Wiradjuri land near Wagga. My country talks to me. I walk my country as I collect my didges and coolamons so I feel very connected.

What do you want for your community?

I work very hard to bring my culture to my people and especially our youth. If we can't save our past we have no future! We need community to all work together!

How will you be celebrating National Reconciliation Week this year?

I will be teaching our young ones at schools about who we are and were we are going. All mobs need a direction and that needs to be going forward.
