“This is our country. 25,000 years, my people have been here. … You look, end to end, this land, remnants of my people’s middens. … This is *our* country.”

His voice was proud and indignant with no tinge of irony. He made it clear that I wasn’t a part of “our”.

I wanted to leave.

Love for environment and connection to the land.

We implicate.

Fundamentally, we only love ourselves.
