Budyari ngutti ( good evening) Amethyst, yes I am indeed passionate about my culture, it is not only the oldest of cultures, its Law has kept balance with the land for eons, yet a few centuries of "modern technology" has that very thing that keeps us alive, the land and its waters, poisoned, dammed and choking, the methods we used for thousands of generations still work if followed, it is the lore of this land. This was our garden of 'eden', and we followed the law and had all we needed, not a stoneage, 'primitive culture, but a thriving beautiful culture that had doctors, scientists, botanists, teachers. We are in modern times, but basic law still applies. Why does the dominmant, "modern' culture still urinate and defecate in our fresh, clean drinking water we enjoyed for millenia? Even just that fundemental Law, quite obvious, is overlooked by 'technology'...and our waters are fouled with excretement, using all the modern technologioes available to do so.....does this really make sense>? In this country, this arid Australia too...we waste water, foul it....the very breath of our life....with 'technology'.....what culture doesn't recognise the importance of fresh water, if merely to drink and replensih the land?.....Yes I am passionate about my cuture, we are of the land, it owns us and we do all we can to maintain it, so the land our Mother will in turn maintain us.....so we do not pee in the water we drink.....that would be silly wouldn't it?
