“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”
Indigenous Australian artist Lilla Watson is often credited with this quote, but prefers it to be attributed to the collective aboriginal activist groups she’s a part of.
The quote points to the responsibility that each one of us has to identify our personal connection to the planet and what drives us personally into action. This intrinsic motivation to act in alignment with our roots, is the starting point of our story.
