A Statement From Rory O'Connor On The Koala Land Report

September 11, 2013

A statement from Rory O’Connor, Yugambeh Aboriginal community spokesperson

 

Borobi – koala

 

Kulun boomooie – the path ahead

I am sure I speak for all Yugambeh people, and indeed all Aboriginal people, when I applaud the ambitions in this document.

 

The borobi was protected by family totemic law for tens of thousands of years, and simultaneously enjoyed as a food source by others for all this time.

 

Aboriginal lore meant the species was both nurtured and utilised in a sustainable manner.

 

Unforunately, today’s community does not adhere to this wisdom.

 

We hope your work is successful for mono jarjum – tomorrow’s children.

 

 

Rory O’Connor, Director

Yugambeh Museum Language & Heritage Research Centre.
