If you don’t know where you come from, if you don’t know who your people are, and you don’t know your culture, then you’ve lost your way. You’ve no identity, then who are you?

Please check out this moving documentary by Bill Code. Why can't Australia do better in helping our First Nations people? And why is an Indigenous young man sent to prison for three years for driving without a licence?
'Filmed on the plains of north-western New South Wales, this documentary looks at one man's fight against the scourge of Indigenous imprisonment in his community.
Inside Out tells the story of a pastor and former prison guard, Uncle Isaac Gordon, whose dream is to see the numbers of Aboriginal youths heading to jail slashed.
Gordon wants to build a 'healing centre' for troubled Aboriginal young people at risk of jail time, built on his family's ancestral land near the towns of Brewarrina and Walgett. But will government bodies get on board?'
