Milla Hendry

My artwork is about Aboriginal land being untouched by white people thousands of years ago and how lush the land was before it was invaded. My artwork relates to reconciliation because it shows the spirits of the land being thankful of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people caring for the land. We should be thankful and together we must heal these historical wounds to form a unified future. My artwork relates to the theme speaking and listening from the heart by the land speaking to the sky and being happy and grateful of the Aboriginal people.

Reconciliation means… Being able to acknowledge the past and make Australia a welcoming and beautiful country step by step.
