"Werte. That means “hello” in my first language, Arrernte.
My name is Dujuan, I am 12 years old. I am from Arrernte and Garrwa Country. I came here to speak with you because our government is not listening. Adults never listen to kids – especially kids like me. But we have important things to say.
I grew up at Sandy Bore outstation and at Hidden Valley Town Camp in Alice Springs. Now I live in Borroloola.
Something special about me is that I am an Angangkere, which means I am a traditional healer. It is my job to look after my family with my healing powers.
I am the star in a new documentary, In My Blood It Runs."
