The story of Protect Country!:

“We paint our traditional homelands (Kalkatungu country) heavily focusing on the landscape because it is very special to us. This country is very rough and rugged, the heat has twisted and folded back on itself and the ochres have been pushed up from the depths. The peach-filled skies, together with the blues, pinks and purples, paint us the renowned Kalkadoon sunsets.

Country is our connection to our home, to our family and to our stories. This is why we must protect it. The land provides us with all we need: our traditional food, medicine and shelter.  It's our connection to our people, grounding and centring us when we feel lost. The land and the people are one, without the land, we are nothing. It's our home, it's who we are.”
