"Connection to Country: Earth-Water-Air-Sky Through the Indigenous Lens with Rowan Foley"
Meet Wondunna Man Rowan Foley as he speaks about Connection to Country and his journey from Uluru-Kata Tjuta Park Ranger/Manager, to presenter at the Paris Climate Agreement.
Understanding fully the deep connection to country, can only lead us to a richer experience and appreciation of how dislocation from country can cause pain and grief.
