This Is Our Code

This land has been ours since anyone can remember. We are born here and here we die. Our families are joined by kinship and clan. We live, work and worship together.

No one can take our language away, our culture, our community our heart. The songs that we sing, our stories, our ways were given to us by the land.

Every word of our tongue a bridge; every word a sacred trust we will not break. Let every generation remember: this is our code.
