Ancestral Bloodlines

In Episode 02 Jarmbi explores how we understand our ancestral bloodlines and DNA codes to connect back to place.

Colonisation is not the end of the story. What we see now is that all the bloodlines are here____ so we can allow the story to play out the way it has been or we can take control of the story. We’re not able to change the past but we can own the future and there’s wisdom in this for all of us. 

Our lands have been cared for by our traditional custodians for 80,000+ years. We move together away from the continuing genocide and colonisation of our peoples. Our sovereignty was never ceded. Sovereignty is responsibility, you can't have one without the other. It is about coming back to Mother. We’ll get the wisdom out of this and we’ll sing the songs, embody the dances and create the stories that go about this time, from colonisation to now. We endow deep respect to the bloodlines of this country.
