Why engage?

Connections between people are what make a healthy landscape (Pockley, 2020).

Stories that connect peoples' personal stories with knowledge from Western science and Indigenous ecological science can promote understanding of the importance of the Antarctic Treaty, and of all treaties, as agreements people make for sustaining life together.

 

"...There's also borders and boundaries in story-telling; there's boundaries in languages. We can't take one language inland from the coast because you're taking it out of its homeland, you're bringing it out of its sacredness. It is such an important thing to watch your boundaries, your creeks, your rivers and mountains. Holding language is another wonderful way of looking after your boundaries. Some people think language is just talking, here and there, but it is much more. It represents a border and it holds culture and law."
