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.

  1. Hey Clinton, best wishes and strong support for your walk! At the moment I am reading “Position Doubtful” and loving it. It is all about Tanami country and Mangkurrurpa up north of where you are now.
    I live in Melbourne on Wurrundjeri land and I hope to see you when you come to these parts. The distances you are crossing are epic.
