"This is an Aboriginal place, with Aboriginal law. We hear this law from others who know. Our grandmothers and grandfathers held the law strongly, and held our culture strongly, and they lived strongly and happily. Now we are living together, white people and black people. We are working together, white and black, equal. Everything on Uluru still runs according to our law. All the rangers wear a badge carrying the image of Uluru. That is as it should be. We are protecting this National Park according to our law. Aboriginal people are training rangers and scientists about the animals and plants of the Park. We are telling them where to look for animals, where their burrows are, what food they eat, everything. Only Anangu knows all theses facts. So listen, I am speaking from the Tjukurpa now. We learn this Tjukurpa from the old men and women. We listen to them and hold onto our law really strongly. There is powerful Aboriginal law in this place. There are important songs and stories that we hear from our elders, and we must protect and support this important law. There are sacred things here, and this sacred law is very important. Government law is written on paper. Anangu carry our law in our heads and in our souls. We don't put our law onto paper. It was given to us by our grandfathers and grandmothers, our fathers and mothers, to hold onto in our heads and in our hearts."
