Protectors of Our Land is the latest release from local Indigenous youth in collaboration with One Vision, a production company whose aim is to empower youth

This song and video is a special message from a special group of Bundjalung youth. They have not forgotten who they are, they are protectors of the land, protectors of one of the oldest cultures on earth and they are reaching out with an important message to the rest of Australia.

‘We need to keep this planet safe and clean,’ says One Vision’s Ella King. ‘We must protect this ancient land and the time to take action is now. It’s always a pleasure working with Cabbage Tree Island Public.

‘We are so proud of this group of young people who grew hugely in confidence, took ownership of their project and created a supportive environment that allowed everyone the opportunity to grow and express in any way they wanted.’
