Wiradjuri. What does it mean?

We are Wiradjuri.

If I was to ask you who or what you are, how would you answer me? American? Australian?  Trainer? Father? Sister?

When the first Europeans on Wiradjuri soil asked us what or who we were, the answer was Wiradjuri. Then, we pointed to everything around us; the sky, the grass, the animal bouncing past, the river they crossed, the trees surrounding them, the ground they walked on and said Wiradjuri. Then pointed to ourselves, Wiradjuri.

We are our country.

Our country is apart of us, is us and makes us.

We are Wiradjuri.
