I’d just say … I won’t stop doing it. This belong to all of us. We share it together … we share our culture and you sharing your culture.

The culture, what you see in the carvings, in the body painting, what you see in the canvas, they more important, because this is the way we are – not going to lose it.

If we don’t keep our laws … our culture … then we fade away. We lose our culture … we lose our language. Then we be talking something else, maybe in English. So we have to take care. This is our background. From the beginning to the end. From generation to generation. Just passing it on.
