We respect the elders past and present and express our heartfelt apology for the injustices endured by Aboriginal people of our Nation. We will continue to strive, day by day, in our thoughts and actions to reflect these truths and sentiments.

“I wrote ‘In Union; Jack’ to give a public voice to the conversations and reflections generated by people viewing ‘Uncle Jack’ by Jandamarra Cadd. The common theme shared with me was one of unity. Unity based on recognising that the shared kindred within us all is the key to honouring how our nation has been enriched by diversity. The manner in which this enrichment was embraced gives me hope for the continued growth of our nation. As this growth wasn’t about forgetting nor replacing our past, but on genuinely advancing Australia. I humbly hope that ‘In Union; Jack’ and ‘Uncle Jack’, in a way, encourages you to act as a custodian of our nation”.
A custodian of ‘Uncle Jack’ by Jandamarra Cadd, 2016.
