"As Indigenous Australians, we are travelling along a path. This path is along and ancient one that has served us well. Along this path we have hit hard times, often leaving us heart-broken. Though we are torn and weathered, we still have a bright future. We look forward to equality in education, health, employment and standard of living. The path won’t be easy, but we will get there." - Tyeli Hannah
“I wanted people, especially Indigenous people, to feel as if the future holds positive things for them,” Tyeli says. “As an Indigenous person, there are a lot of hard things to deal with in life, but there are also a lot a great things and that’s what we should be celebrating. “We need to recognise and strive to achieve good things in life, as well as deal with the negative stuff.”
