STORY - Treaty Together
This painting represents Connection & Healing. Connecting back to the land, back to our culture. Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people have fought many many years to have our voice heard in this country; we have fought for the truth to be heard and we have fought for Treaty. Only when our cries are heard will there be healing within our communities. There will be a re-connection to ancestral lands, represented two hands in the painting.
The boomerangs symbolize the return on culture and country through recognized treaties. The gum leaves & wattle around the water symbolize healing. The sun setting behind the gumtree tells the truth: "It always has and always will be Aboriginal land".
