I was born on Whadjuk Nyungar land in Gidgegannup [place of spears] and now live nearby Baigup wetlands on the Derbarl Yerrigan [so-called Swan River]. I regularly walk and work on Martu, Nyiyarparli, Gija, Bunuba, Gooniyandi and Walmajarri lands. I pay my respects to all First Nations people and their elders past and present, and I thank them for their continued custodianship of this land. Sovereignty was never ceded.
