    'Each of us carries multiple legacies. I reflect on my personal history: ancestors from Germany, Scotland and England who travelled to Australia by boat seeking better lives. In this way, I am part of a broader legacy of English colonisation. My place and opportunity living on unceded Wurundjeri country has come at the cost of the Boonwurrung and the Woiwurrung peoples who are the custodians of this land. I am part of a generation that is grappling with how to reckon with the violence of this history; seeking ways in which non-Indigenous Australia can make meaningful restitution with First Nations peoples, and, importantly, learn from the legacy of these ancient knowledges.' (Editorial introduction)
