Personal Statement :
As the First Peoples of this country, our responsibility to our Mother Earth demands our life-long commitment. To honour this obligation, many of us have striven to educate ourselves 'both ways' to the highest degree. In our language we have a word 'gana' which means, simultaneously, listen, know and understand. Our language comes from the land. As the oldest living culture on this land, we have much to contribute.
