Our walk to these lands was to walk in the foot step of people of this land, it turned out that the song that was playing, was that the song of the song line that they were showing us at that moment in time. They play it when they check out the rock holes and move on the song line, we walked up here on an ancient land, I discovered that I was walking on a culture highway that has been walked on for more than fourty thousand years, listing to the song that would tell us the was to go, they live and breath the past, the present and still walk on into their future, I was with people that could show me the time that they have lived on this land, I would be proud of the link to the land to, it pleases me to be here to see a ancient culture today.” – Noonie

15232293_1897166917173162_1752529112359735265_nJust remember this Christmas guys. When you pay toy’s and gift for your family and Friend. You only making more money for Corporate to get rich more.

Who work day and night only getting payed a cent or a dollars a day. People from them country are working like slave just to make you happy this Christmas.

Corporate using Jesus birth as a way to make money for them self. By telling people on the media to pay toy’s and gifts at this Christmas time. They have being doing this staff for years and it need to stop. If you what to do something for Christmas and don’t want corporate to get richer. Don’t pay no toy’s or gift at this Christmas.

So this Christmas if you want to do something go out to the beach, plant some tree to help look after wild life, feed the birds in the river, pick up some rubbish and help look after the planet, have a BBq with family and friends, enjoy your life in a way by feeling proud of your self and knowing how far you come or got pay some food and see homeless person this Christmas and set down with them and share food with them because that what Christmas is about sharing and caring for one another as human been and being proud of your self for living in this world.

Also to talk about how think a going for the women in Jameson community. When I was in there I notes the elderly women where making paper.

I when over and ask them what this paper made off. They told me that this paper is made out of spinifex seed’s. I was like no way. It dosing say in our history book we made spinifex paper. But it look like the history book a wrong. The people from the centre desert made paper. They being making paper out of spinifex seed’s seen traditional time and use to write on them to pass letter to other country group.

Also to talk with each other and use them to invited group from other area in to they country for law time, for some one who pass away, invited for dinner and many more think they use the spinifex paper for.

The spinifex paper is very rare and I never seen one before manly in a museum. This the first time I have see one. The Australia museums, western Australia museum and the British museum. Who love to get they hands on one of this and put it in to a museum.

But they won’t get they hands on this. They have to much. This spinifex paper is very rare and made from the elders of the central desert area. This go to show we use to make paper. But made it out of spinifex seed’s. Thank you to the women elders from the central desert for letting me have one.

15027869_1889467587943095_7703934226143452574_nO.k need to let everyone know that I not just walking across a whole country because I want to live a normal life. People need to realise that behind closed door I being doing a lot of work on having meeting with elders and local leader about want need to be done in community and the land how to make think right for my people. The paper work, video recording and message from elders. I don’t load it up on Facebook.

Why because one it no one else business but my own and two the government is watching me to see want I’m up to. I will step it up soon when I reach Uluru and start explain more about what I have seen, hear and understand in community that need to be done for elder and for the people.

All the paper work and video record is keep secret because I need to write it all down to put in a powerful speech to speak on community behalf and how the government has failed our people in community, town, city and in this country.

People need to also realise that this walk for justice is bigger than what it is. This why a lot of non Indigenous people have join this movement same as Indigenous people under one think. The walk for justice because there no justice for the people of Australia until some one stand up for the people and that want I’m doing by walking across the country for.

Day 57: 6pm

14908225_1884606045095916_3232392658533933231_n-1When we was at Wiluna. This two statue is to honor the last of the nomad’s. The two old people who was find out in the Gibson Desert name where Warri and Yatungka. Warri and Yatungka were believed to be the last of the Mandildjara tribe of the desert nomads to live permanently in the traditional way. Their deaths in the late 1970s marked the end of a tribal lifestyle that stretched back more than 30,000 years.

I think about this two amazing people that they name well live on through out the century to come and that our people well know that this two were the last two people in our culture way. Who live the old way before our people change in to this modern world we live now. I still reading the book and I up to page 52 now and it starting to make me understand more about this two and how they live they life before passing on.

14906841_1674252162885197_8750057346895803166_nClinton’s Crossing

A Nyungah man is walking cross Australia
A Nyungah, Clinton Pryor is his name
This south-west man is walking now for justice
He’s travelling and calling for a change
He’s walking from Perth across to Canberra
He’s walking, to get a message through
You might not know it ….
You might not know him…
But he’s walking Australia for you too
You might think a Nyungah walking in the out- back
Would hardly make a scratch upon a wall
But first week he got a call to say sorry
That the “Sorry” said had made no change at all
And as leader spoke to leader on the cell phones
The sun rose higher in the sky

A Nyungah man is walking his country
Walking proud… .and asking why
A Nyungah man is walking Australia
He’s one of the willing and the few
They’re walking all the way to Canberra
Where politicians do…. what they do
He’s gathering the stories of his people
And listening to the stories of the land
Sending out a daily record on his face book
So people in the city understand
Exposing the failures in the system
Learning of the sorrow and the pain
The growing list of promises broken
The struggle, always struggle with no gain
A Nyungah man is crossing Australia
And calling for a right to the wrongs
For an end to injustice and the failure
To find a way that we can all belong

A Nyungah Man is walking this country
He’s walking to get a message through
You might not know it ….
You might not know him…
But he’s walking Australia for you too.
Sometimes days without a signal
Solid road becomes dirt track
But TV News and film crews
Are now crossing the out-back
To Leanora, Laverton,
And Warburton as well
And Clinton’’s walk for Justice
Is the story that they tell
He’s walking in the heat of the desert
Through the centre and on past Uluru
You might not know it ….
You might not know him…
But he’s walking Australia for you too


Day 58: 12.30pm

[Admin Jake] One of Clinton’s friends and supporters had been discussing a pair of painted up steel capped boots for Clinton.

About two to three weeks ago, Marcia sent her finished artwork off from Queensland to her partner Wazza in Perth. Wazza and his Dad then drove the boots out to Clinton over the space of a couple of days, past Kalgoorlie and handed them over to Clinton. Below are a few beautiful pics that only just touch on the story.

The boots also accompanied a letter from Ngallagunda remote community which Clinton is reading in one if the photos, which they wish for Clinton to present to Mr Turnbull in Canberra.

Thank you to Marcia, Wazza and Wazza’s Dad and the Ngallagunda remote conmunity and everyone else that contributes to Clinton’s journey.

Much love! You are all fantastic!

They have tried to silence us through threats and intimidation but the world needs to know what is happening on these cattle stations and how morally bankrupt people are actively and persistently working to take over our aboriginal run stations. If there is someone reading this who has any kind of legal or social background that can lend advise or time the mob at Ngallagunda will welcome conversation with you. Pm me and I can put you in touch with them. Thank you for all the kind words also. And Clinton, you’re a legend – you will go down in history.” – Marcia
