We have had to stand up to keep our Law safe. We talk, talk and still some people can't believe us; words aren't good enough anymore. You have to have something to put in somebody's hand, and that is what this book is for. It is to put into people's hands so they can see for themselves our truth. Our words are in this book, our land, our ceremony; it is our Law." -- Mussolini Harvey, Yanyuwa Elder.
