Remembering that the land is the giver of life to all plants and animals, which we need to fuel our bodies, we have to respect her as a major part of our lives. There is a life force that flows through everything and every one of us. Everything is connected in some form or other, which means we all have a duty of care for each other, regardless of sex, creed or colour. This help might be given in the form of mental, physical or spiritual aid, and this means maintaining our own health so we are strong for others — but, more importantly, we’re also strong in our own body, mind and culture.
