“My ‘liyan ’is my moral compass ... is the ‘feeling ’which helps me to navigate my movements on Country and it helps me to read people and determines my relationship with them. This ‘feeling or liyan ’is deeply personal and guides my life journey with human and non-human beings; the plants, the trees, the birds, and other animals. It is ingrained in my inner spirit and enshrines my rights and responsibility to our Mardoowarra, river of life. This is the law of relationships! It is personal, spiritual and not for human beings to determine, it is the Law of the Land, not the Law of Man”. Dr Anne Poelina
