    'Our Land is Our Life is a rare opportunity to sit down with Galarrwuy Yunupingu, Marcia Langton, Michael Dodson and Patrick Dodson, Noel Pearson, Lois O'Donoghue, Michael Mansell, Peter Yu, and many more whose names appear in the daily media. In this collection the most influential indigenous leaders of our time provide analyses and reveal their passions for their people and land, and for the Australia we all want to call home. Our Land is Our Life is inspired by the twentieth anniversary of the Aboriginal Land Rights (NT) Act, and coincides with the final year for lodgement of claims. As the ground is shifting beneath indigenous Australia, in a political sense, there is an even greater need to stand firm on the central issue of land rights. To forsake our land is to deny not just ourselves but also the future of Australia, socially, environmentally and culturally. This collection features valuable archival material, including photographs and cartoons, as well as landmark documents.
