This 12-panel work made for the Mum Shirl Tribute Exhibition curated by Universtiy of NSW, deals with issues of colonialization, marginalization, dispossession and cultural genocide of aboriginal people. It touches on the Stolen Generations, Native Title and affirmative action. The use of fragments of the world map symbolizes, like the title, our shared humanness regardless of racial, religious, social, political and cultural differences and places the issue of reconciliation within the broader context.
