This year's theme design is dedicated to all of the Elders from past, present and to the future that I have had the privilege to grow up with and get to know, and to those that I am yet to meet.
We are connected to them all through culture and spirit. One day I hope to be able to gather around a campfire with them on the ancestral plain, to yarn and listen to every story and song, and to watch every dance. To mourn the tragedies and to celebrate the triumphs of our people.
This is for my Elders. This is for your Elders. This is For Our Elders.
