Day 157: 9pm 

I’m still walking and I cannot wait to get to Port Augusta. The first think I’m doing is going for a swim in the ocean after not seeking the ocean for almost 5month on the walk. There a lot has be going on and it time I get back in the scene again.


Day 157: 9.30pm

We spent the afternoon at Kingoonya with the birthday girl, this is how it is there. – Noonie


Day 158: 7am

Ngayulu itingarinyi unngu nyangata punu; I was born under this tree.

I would like to meet a lovely lady name Valerie Cox, who lives at Kingoonya S.A. Valerie made a damper for Allison, the birthday girl and ice the cake. While the cake was cooking, we had time to record Valerie were she was born. I had talk to people along this juoney who were born in the bush, but this was the first time I had the chance to record a person at the place where the birth tock place. Valerie was happy to show us and be recorded. She was very happy to be on her Country and where she was born. The mother of Valerie was to catch the train and then give birth, the tree is near an old camping ground, Valerie come first befor the train came.

Once again the stolen children were talked about again, Valerie family was not apart of the stolen generation, they told the same story’s of running and hiding when they could hear cars coming, they were never vaxinated, they came with the needles and ask were are the children, they off playing and running off somewhere, crow Valerie brother said we were hiding in the bushes looking at them till they were gone. This was the life of the children who escaped from the government people, coming to take the children from their family’s. They came back home.

Valerie Cox also makes a very good damper birthday cake. Thankyou. – Noonie

[Guest Post: Trevor McNamee] Well, just did a little detour on my way to Adelaide and surprised these 3 Legends on Clintons Walk For Justice. Clinton, Noonie and Garry… They are in Glendambo 270 kms north of Port Augusta. The support car has broken down and thanks to the local cop lent them a Van and towed it into Pt Augusta to be fixed……See the Go fund Me page to help with cost to repair https://www.gofundme.com/clintonswalk

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.
