"In traditional times there were no borders like now – no states and territories; no native title borders and different groups drawing lines. This project removes those borders so that we can work together to keep country and people healthy. It is an ambitious project that we are keen to do." Nyaparu Rose, Nyangumarta Warrarn Elder
