South bound, we will be staying one more night at Coober Pedy, Brett and Jessie will be continuing on the way home. Brett will be returning when he can, it way good to have them with us. – Noonie

Day 144: 8.30am

I being advice from my admin team has told me that state minister of indigenous affair from South Australia, NSW, Victoria and ACT want to get in connect with me and march with me on the street when I reach they area and what to talk with me about something.

I have also been advice from the admin team that labor and the green is now wanted to talk with me about some think. As I stand here on my own thinking about how this gone to play out when we reach Port Augusta, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra. Change is starting to happen as we speak. It has started to happen the day I left Perth. It was only the matter of time people is starting to realise what really going on in this country and what is happening.

So there for the only why I going to get my voice head and listing to is to speak the truth and none thing but the truth about how think can be done right for everyone and how think can be done right for our country future. It is time we stand up together for what we believe in and stand together for our children future. People need to realise not to allow our self getting distracted from the big picture. I’m no longer the learner and now have become the teach with much more to learn.

Day 144: 2.30pm

The landscape out from Coober Pedy, open, not a lot of trees, not a lot of rubble over the land South of Coober Pedy. It is good to see the green not tbe rubble. – Noonie

Day 144: 4.30pm

We need to realise as the oldest living culture on earth need to know that our dream time guardeds from the beginning when our culture began are still here living with us and are waiting on the right time. They have been here and have been watching over us making shore we follow the lore that they have pass down on to us from the beginning of time.

This is a screen shot from Benjamin Kenny from Docker River. He has tag me in this from last year and I forgotten to share. So today I’m sharing this and what to thank Mr Benjamin Kenny for tagging me in this.

This what Mr Benjamin Kenny said about this picture: This is a hill ranger north of Docker River about 150km in the Katiti Petermann IPA. I saw on Google earth and it look like a big snake but before I saw this and showed the TOs of this they told me there is a rainbow serpant living in a water hole in that range. The snake is facing west toward Kintore.

Day 144: 6.30pm

I hope this map is not true with how many language we got left in our culture that is still spoking. If it is we must do what needed to be done to keep our last of the language in our culture a live. We are in dark time right now and i making shore i going to push for my people language, truth history and my culture to be teach at school. So that every one know our language’s, know the truth history of our country pass and know my people culture but not our lore. Some think need to be done and I’m going to speak about this over in Canberra.

Update: I being told this only 50% of this has being done so far. There still a lot more language and a lot of reach search is going on right now trying to bring back and revive some language are still spoking by elders who are a live and language that a keep in archive in library. We must not loss our ancient language.

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. Dear Clinton
    Whenever I read your posts it brings tears to my eyes and a deep swelling of emotion I am right behind you and love what you are doing I have been blowing the same trumpet for many years now.. in the early “90s’ something stirred inside of me and I was compelled to learn more, I just felt something wasn’t right and there was more to the story, going to school in the 1970s and 1980s there was no real content available to learn about the true history of Australia and I had a yearning a drive a calling to learn more .. I enrolled at Sydney university in Aboriginal Studies i spent most lectures in tears and a well of hatred built up for all the wrongs that have been done to the native people and I live with disgust of their ignorance .. so i set out to be honest and truthful about what i felt I didn’t care if it was a manager of some other person of importance i spoke honestly and from the heart and I have been speaking up ever since to the arrogant racist small minded people that really don’t have a clue.. but as I have told them you may not get the truth it may elude you in your ignorance but when you go to sleep at night you are sleeping under an Aboriginal sky ubder Aborigianal stars and you are part of the dreaming whether you like it or not.. You are making my heart sing and I am right behind you every step.. I hope I get to meet you. we just visited Canberra for a few days I wanted to bash down the politicians door and shout out that you are on your way. Lots of hope and light.

  2. Thanks Clinton for your posts. I’m a white guy but love what you are doing. Spent a lot of time around Coober Pedy in my working days (i used to be a govt geologist in South Australia). Hope you get the results you want from officials and not a lot of procrastinating promises!
