Quote of the Day

“It’s not our fault if we don’t know our language. It’s not our fault if we don’t know our lore. It’s not our fault if we don’t know our dances and ceremonies. If we don’t know the name of our tribe, it’s not our fault! …and you know what the courageous thing to do, is to reclaim that. Reclaim that language. Reclaim that lore. Reclaim those dances. Re-claim our cultural shape. Because our culture is all around us. Look at this room. Everywhere I look I see it! When I look into your eyes I don’t see a victim I see warriors. You understand what I’m sayin’? I see men. I don’t see drunks or problems or drug addicts. I see men. And our culture, our people, need men like you.”Richard Frankland to some young Koorie men in prison.
