Remember me, my people is kilpara and muckarra, we didn’t only have animals as relations, these too are our relations. The plants what're being protected and they're finding endangered plants, our people protected those because they was related to them and it's not just in western New South Wales it's all over, all over the country, all over Australia people they got relations there on that plant.
Some of us protect it, but me there's certain animals I can eat and certain animals I gotta protect, cause that’s my brother and sister. And then, one of you mob was different again, you would have different things to protect so you're saving something over here. This plant, you protecting that because that’s your family but someone else can come and get it, right? That's the lore of the land, that's the blackfulla's way. Not just go out and destroy everything like these so-called smart people are doing.
That water belongs to us. And the river, I am a Barka wiimpatja, so that there, so what I say to people “It doesn’t matter what colour you are, pick something even if it's this river red gum tree or anything, pick it, that’s your totem, that’s what you protect until everyone come together and stop being greedy and manage properly then things will work for our country for the future generations otherwise we’re gonna have nothing.
