But I got told it doesn’t matter want age you are if you can look after the people, protect the land, trusted with knowledge that going to be pass down on to me when i’m walking through community and learn they Dreamtime story all the community I pass, doing something that never being done before in our culture and in our history passing thought other country to connecting with the people an community.

They said that a rate of an elder or become something more like high than a elder becoming the rate of a leader or the father for our people because something like this has never being done before. Never, never has. Walking thought other country and walking across the hole country for Justice. This walk well have every one watching it. So i have alot of pressure on me because all my people well be watching this walk also the hold country as well.

Also I being told that community a starting to get ready for me when i arrived at their communities to spend the night with them.

I don’t know want going to happen on this walk. I’m scared, happen, pressure, ready for this and see how this play out.

I’m a Wajuk, Balardung, Kija and a Yulparitja man from the West of Australia. I will be walking across country from Matagarup/Heirrison Island in Perth to Parliament House in Canberra, following songlines and visiting communities along the way, where I will eventually be seeking audience with the Prime Minister and address the many injustices against the First Nations people of this land.
