Fighting for the land — 4 Comments

  1. Reminds me of Robert Frost’s poem Mending Walls where the boundaries of property are sacrosanct. I rather like the aboriginal perspective. There is no aboriginal word for ‘ownership’ they refer to land as ‘country’ and consider themselves stewards of large tracts of land rather than owners. Sadly white settlement has imposed boundaries on a people who knew how to farm it without degradation and harm.
