My artwork is about how Country is was and always will be Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ land. I included the traditional Aboriginal dots to recognise the pain they went through and how brave they were. The land we live, breath and stand on today will always be Aboriginal peoples’ land. The sun represents the life that it’s giving to all the plants and other living creatures. We should respect living on the land of the Wongal, Gadigal and Birrabirragal people of the Eora nation.

Reconciliation means… To me reconciliation means respecting and acknowledging that Aboriginal people were originally here and recognising the pain that was caused.
