Francis Parryman, Kimberley Stolen Generation: The Stolen Generation is a Government policy, way back in the dark ages, when they wanted assimilation, they wanted to to wipe out the Aboriginal race, I suppose.
They took half-caste kids away from their parents, or their mothers, particularly, and dispersed them throughout Australia, never to be seen again, for quite a few.
I think the effects are intergenerational, and we still see trauma in a lot of our members. They struggle with their identity. They struggle with connecting back to country and to family.
Tanya Denning-Orman, Channel Manager, NITV: We're a rich country. Australia is an extremely rich country. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have made it an extremely rich country. Yet, our children are dying at a rate faster than any other. Our young people are ending up in prison.
It shouldn't be the norm. The deaths, the diabetes, the suicides, the literacy; that shouldn't be the norm.
William Hodges, Burringilly Respite Centre: Particularly with the younger people, I've found, and sometimes the middle aged people, it's just that identity crisis they're going through. They get to a certain point, particularly as they get older, I've found, some of the dads, they've lost contact with family, they've never actually learned much about where they're from.
With Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients, making sure they're well-connected back to their own community tends to put them in good stead.
Tanya Denning-Orman, Channel Manager, NITV: Indigenous people may only be five per cent of the world's population, but the sustainability, the integrity, the knowledge that belongs to First Nations the world over is critical to the future of the planet.
One by one people are starting to engage, and we're here for them when they're ready; when they're ready to learn.
