I have shown this message because it is important for all young people to remember the disciplines of Yolŋu law. These words mean “Always work together not alone.” This person is sitting on the ground. We are still part of the land. This is what we tell the young people in the discipline ceremonies such as raypirri. To focus on the Yolŋu law strongly and after that to look at Ŋapaki because our foundation is still in the soil, in the land. We must never work alone but always together. Help each other. Help the land. Always look back to the law of the old Yolngu people and be with them. We are one with the land and with each other.
