Country Needs People - Supporter Voices

Growing up in a remote community I saw Aboriginal police trackers become policemen, nurses' aides becoming nurses, teachers' aides becoming teachers but most of all I saw the love of the community for the land, the pride taken in handing down knowledge of hunting, fishing, tracking and how to look after the country we lived in. I met aboriginal rangers and could see what the job meant to them. It was great for us to hear what had been handed down over centuries, knowledge of the land and our place in it.
