I have been reflecting on the theme for NAIDOC 2021 ‘Heal Country’ and thinking what a task it will be to achieve this, but it is not insurmountable.
It is 100% the right thing to do and with wider community support and good leadership, is certainly possible.
So how are we going to Heal Country, Heal Our Land?
