Day 293: 10.30am

I be calling up traditional own Reggie Uluru today about some thing and also about seeking advice from them on how I can use the Piece of Uluru rock in Canberra. I what ask and see about burying piece of Uluru rock in Canberra underneath the tree I’m going to planted at embassy.

Also be asking traditional own around Canberra about it to. I what use the piece of the rock that was giving to me from Reggie Uluru to bury it with the tree so it can become a part of the tree. The tree I what to plant well be a symbol of unity between all the 2,000 first nation clan group and a symbol of wisdom knowledge, healing, respect, strength and courage. But most of all united as one for our people, for our culture, for our ancestor, for our law, for our child and for this country itself.

So our people can be proud of who they are and proud of been a part of the longest living culture on earth.
