The sands of time have faded...

Several weeks ago, I had the privilege of joining an incredible, all Indigenous panel at the Indigenous Land Corporation's (ILC) Senior Managers Conference. Tasked with reflecting on the organisations successes over the last 20 years and projecting what the future may hold, the conference was a time to pause and to dream.

Culinary Reconciliation- our need to connect

Our Australian agricultural story begins more than 40,000 years ago, with our Indigenous Brothers and Sisters sustainably farming the earth we walk on and the water that flows around us. They used sophisticated farming practices to sustain the environment in order to feed our families, our communities and our culture. They did this successfully across dramatic climate change events, including ice ages. As we approach our anthropogenic climate change challenges, we have much to learn from the ancestors of this place.

I have a voice. 

However, it is not the voice you might expect from a young Aboriginal man.

We meet here today on land where decisions have been made for Indigenous people for almost 100 years, a place where our people still live, dream and grow. And today, right now, we have a new voice to be heard.
