We wish to express our gratitude and appreciation to the following people:

We thank our Senior Cultural leaders for their vision and sharing knowledge with us. We are deeply grateful to you for making it possible for us to share and pass on your cultural stories to the next generations. Without your support, guidance and cultural authority this would not have been made possible. To all the children, teachers and Anangu educators from Mimili, Ernabella and Amata Schools we thank you for joining us on the culture camp and assisting us to create this digital space.
