"….for younger generations to be able to participate (and) to be led with such a solid base of wisdom of a lot of leaders' minds and thinkers who've come through generations of families that have been leading and pushing for our formation as sovereign nations. To see all that kind of come together is the hope that I think we all share. I think we all are not just passive participants, we're driving forward because we know that this is our right as Aboriginal nations and that we have a lot of work to do. I absolutely appreciate that everyone came with a sense of openness and unity and that we’ll move forward on those good values and intent."

Les Coe, Wiradjuri, puts Treaties of Unity in context with relation to the coercive Recognition for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in the colonial Commonwealth constitution, which is seen as a trap.

Wiradjuri: "The gathering has been about a treaty of unity for our people. We’ve worked over three days on a template. We’re asking all our people to take this template back, discuss it in the families, discuss it in your clans, discuss it in your tribes. And also, please, for the world to see, put it down in you language. We want the world to know there are many, many clans still living, just surviving, many tribes. And we as a people need to come together. If it’s only for this one time and place in history it will be enough to change this country and hence change the world.”
