FROM INVASION TO HEALING

BY MIKE WELSH

Lewis Walker is an Bundajalung elder from the North Coast NSW town of Tabulam and predicts that a healing day will overtake Invasion day within a decade

Lewis -who speaks the 13 languages of his nation- was in Canberra to attend the Australia Day Invasion Day (Jan 26) march. The Wahria-Bal custodian says a day of remembrance is a day of healing and hopes “to change this traumatised day into healing the people and healing the land”

Many laws were broken on this day, and before this day and before that because back then we had no record and no witnesses but today we got witnesses from all walks of life.
