Indigenous Femicide, Genocide, Sovereignty and Resistance 1c - Jackie Huggins Quote


‘Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women possess a strength and resilience which most people cannot even begin to comprehend. We are the backbone of our communities. We are the life-givers, the nurturers and the carers. We are equally leaders, elders, role models and activists. We advocate fiercely for our own and work tirelessly every day for change. We are survivors, and we are fighters. We are the roots of the oldest known continuing culture on Earth. We have overcome the odds just by being here, living, breathing and fighting, every day.’

Jackie Huggins, Bidjara and Birri-Gubba Juru, Co-Chair, Reconciliation Australia
