We are a continent of many different First Nations countries. To understand the land, the waterways, the seasons, the natural ebbs and flows of this continent, we must pay respect and acknowledge First Nations knowledge and sciences.
The Bundjalung Nation Flood Response is a joint effort of Jali LALC, Bogal LALC, Bandjalung Native Tiltle Group, Currie Country Group and Currie Country Social Change Aboriginal Corporation.
Chris Binge (CEO Jali LALC Widjabul Wia Bul Man Bundjalung Nation), Rebecca Woods (CEO Bogal LALC Quandmooka Woman), Arabella Douglas (CEO Currie Country Group, Currie Country Social Change Aboriginal Corporation, Minyungbal Woman, Bundjalung Nation) acknowledge and pay deep respect to the enduring and unbroken relationship of all the First Nation communities and clans of the unceded Aboriginal Nations.
This is what needs to be done by all Governments now, and the steps for serious deliberate change to support First Nations sciences and systems to lead the Bundjalung Nation out of climate crisis. As supporters of First Nations sciences and with the power and ability to affect change, we respectfully request that you share this work across all of your networks.
The movement has started and we must continue to engage to increase momentum. Together, we need to act and put in changes to meet the challenges of the climate crisis. We must re-set our relationship with First Nations knowledge systems at the core of our shared future.
