Uncle Bob Randall teaches Bondi about Kanyini, the principle of connectedness through caring and responsibility that underpins Aboriginal life.

Kanyini is a connectedness to tjukurrpa (knowledge of creation or 'Dreaming', spirituality), ngura (place, land), walytja (kinship) and kurunpa (spirit or soul).

Kanyini is nurtured through caring and practicing responsibility for all things and manifests as unconditional love.

Tjilpi Bob Randall is a Yankunytjatjara elder from Australia, member of the Stolen Generations and former Indigenous Person of the Year. He is credited with bringing to light the issue of forced removal of Aboriginal children from their families, in 1970. His song, "My Brown Skin Baby They Take Him Away," written at the time, is described as an "anthem" for the Stolen Generations.

Throughout his life, Bob has worked as an educator and leader for equal rights of all living, land rights and responsibility to the environment, Indigenous cultural awareness and preservation, and community development. (Via Wikipedia)
