Woolee Woolee Keetwanta is a video and sound work that appears and invites the passer-by/viewer a glimpse into a future way of living; living in a world that values First Peoples knowledge, language, culture Law and Being; where we ARE First Peoples in our Lands; language is our Mother Tongue and spoken again as our daily means of communication and where the ‘other’ have been integrated into Country, into ‘place’ on our terms, in our Ways in our Law.
