Had the pleasure of spending the day walking with Clinton Pryor who has quickly become one of the most inspirational people I have ever met. I’ve been following Clintons journey the last 14 days as he walks from WA to Canberra to meet with the PM to seek treaty and justice for First Nation people’s.

This walk will be studied by my kids in time to come and will be up there with Mabo. I feel honoured that myself and one of my boys had this opportunity to be apart of history to join Clinton on this journey and I certainly will be by his side when he reaches Alice Springs and Canberra.

With all the media publicity, I find it hard to believe that no one has offered to purchase him shoes! Hopefully the new shoes I got him will get a few miles.

One of my favourite parts of the day was sitting around on the side of the highway in the middle of the desert, drinking tea and reciting parts of Forrest Gump!

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.
