‘We Belong to Country’
76 x 61cm
Acrylic on stretched canvas ready to hang.
This work is a celebration and acknowledgment of Country. First Nation’s people have thrived and lived sustainably with the land we call Australia for more than 60,000 years. We are spiritually and culturally connected to this country. It is inherent to our identity and is interconnected with our culture, family and kinship, traditions, songlines, languages, and physical and emotional well-being. Country is more than a place. Country is our mother, and gives us our identity and sense of belonging. Protecting Country and culture is fundamental. Our ancestors walked this sacred country for millennia and continue to live on in the land, water and the sky. Honouring the reciprocal relationship with the land is central to our culture and is a concept important for all people living in Australia today.
