Customer Feedback: Eva and I would like to tell you how much we enjoyed the day we spent with you on Wednesday. It was an enlightening experience and you gave us a great understanding of relationship between indigenous people and their land. We especially enjoyed the openness with which you described your own life and experiences and we were impressed how you have retained your traditional indigenous culture in white Australian society.
