I’ve been working with SharingStories for the longest time because they really listen and they help me and my community to hold on to our culture. We have been making movies and animations and using the drone to see our stories and our land from a different perspective. We have recorded lots of stories in Nyikina now that all cross over and map our Country and everyone is feeling really proud of the work they have done.”
