“I think that some of the amazing spin-offs from both the Ranger Program and the Leadership program is that you start with a simple idea of getting people back on country, reconnecting them, getting them involved in environmental and cultural-type activities, and you start to see the growth in individuals in their own leadership and how they relate to each other and the other things they start to influence around them, so the social and economic conditions that they’re in, the justice conditions they’re in, the fact that there is now a two-way learning going on between Martu and services, and services and Martu, and that is changing for the better the whole community.”
