Dr Cammi Murrup-Stewars says that her identity as an Aboriginal woman existing within a settler-colonial world means that her child will always be at risk. That no reconciliation action plan can ensure her daughter's safety. This is what it means to live in the colony as an Indigenous parent.

Grief, sorrow and anger bind us together as we face the attempted elimination of our Peoples. Together, we understand the role that racism has played in both our histories and current contexts.
