With a deep concern for the preservation of their unique cultures and the climactic chaos we are experiencing worldwide, indigenous elders from around the globe are rising to navigate the path forward in these unprecedented times. In response to the PhD studies of Uncle Pat Lock on Aboriginal Leadership with the University of Newcastle, Australia’s Awabakal Elders and community gathered for a traditional ‘yarn up’ at the Macquarie Life Church in Cardiff, NSW in March 2019, to discuss and share unique cultural knowledge specifically relating to the water crisis, seismic testing in our oceans and skilful use of fire to manage and care for country. Their warnings serve as a palpable reminder that #it’s_time! to come together, to remember who we are and our connection to everything in existence. Our survival depends upon it.
