Days 200 & 201: Port Augusta – Officially!

Day 200: 12.30pm

They say when you doing a big walk it call walkabout. There meaning to why people do a walkabout is in our culture the day or a time in life that when think are hard in your life or think are hard in life for your people something need to be done to make it right and save the people.

The spirit of the land and our old people come down from the sky an land to seek someone to lead the way of a new began for his people and culture. When I walk this great land, when I talk with elders in the desert community they told me your dreaming and old people visit you when you was on the island sitting around the spirit fire and the dreaming spirit told you to get up and go on a journey across this great land to find the truth and find a new way.

(I say yes to the elders, when I was setting around the spirit fire on the island and look into the fire, thinking how can I help my people, how can we save our culture my old people please show me the way of making a change in this time of age. So I sat there thinking steering at the spirit fire thinking and thinking than a visions was showing in the mind and in the spirit fire. It show me walking across this country, a new way of something new that I did not know why it was showing. That when i realise to my self to chance it and make it happen or just let it pass by, I made the choose to chance it and than on would I started to tell everyone that i’m going to walk across this great land to make a stand for everyone I told the elders in desert community)

They told me that you and those who are with you have been choose for reason. But they choose you, this why your here today walking now. Your doing a big walk about not just for the people but to find your self to. Your not just know as Clinton Pryor put also know as a spirit walker, i said a spirit walk the elders said yes your a spirit walker who out to find the truth and to save the people in this hard time right now.

That when i realise why i when on this walk I’m a spirit walker, but i hope not to be the last spirit walker. A spirit walker who follow the song line that been walk on since traditional time.


Day 200: 7.30pm

Day 197: 6.30pm

I’m just thinking about the most amazing thing that happen on the walk and I got to say it would be the part from Docker River to Uluru where I got to meet the dockey on the road that came out from the Bush. It was Strage that when I left docker river and just walking out from the community onto the road i look up to look down the road and there was this dockey just standing there in the middle of the road looking at me.

But what amaze me was when I was walking out from Docker River when the dockey was standing in the middle of the road The sun was just rising half way over the hill and it shine a little light on the dockey when it was standing there It feel like my ancients wanted me to ride the dockey into Uluru.

But I decided not to ride the dockey and told the spirit of the land and old people I must do this journey on foot If I choice the dockey I be riding a dockey onto Canberra and that be something to see But Im happy that I made the choice to walk into uluru and the rest of the way to Canberra.

Also told him that it cannot be all the time blackfulla who are in government and those who are sell out when it come to aboriginal affairs can speak for us and agreed on think for us when they don’t speak for us or don’t have the power to agreed on think for us. I said you must have the grass root mob there, APLY mob and other country group there to because they have the right to have a say to and need to be party of this treaty agreement.

I have told him that are you black fulla and him said yes well other think to our people do not what this recognise think that this federal government trying to push though. We do not what this recognise because it take away our sovereignty right. He look at me and agreement with on that to. But he said it the federal issue not state issue. I said o.k mate.

But I told the minister to keep up the amazing job he doing for South Australia people.

Day 186: 10pm

The sun set. – Noonie


Day 187: 7.30am

I don’t know what it is but I can feel change in the air slowly. Maybe because now back at home we have a new government in power. But I think to my self not to rush into thing thinking real change is going to happen. I still worry about if labour well do a great job or not. My thinking make me wonder about what going on with the closer of community, what they going to do for the homeless and how we going to get our state out of 40 billion dollars in debts.

The real question is why would labour what to spend more tax payer money on a new train line when they need to do first is start getting our state our of debts with our spacing more money. The fight for change is only getting started because we still need to ask question about the force closer of community, treaty with my people, the homeless, elders on pension who not well look after, education, job, welfare cards if it good or not, looking after the land without freaking it because they mute use a exusse to say we need to mining the land to create jobs, remove of child, death in custody, stronger law against crimes who do crimes, how they going to get us out of debts with out spending more money to put us in debts and many more other issue

The last time labour was in power back at home i remember they put western Australia in debts 40 billion dollars and the only way they paid it of was that they sell off Telstra who was Australia own to foreign country to get us out of debts. When we should know Telstra should stay Australia own. No matter what happen we must realise not to jump in so fast thinking change is coming. When we know labour and library are the same when it come to the people vote and trust to elected them telling people to vote for me and we do a better job than them. But when they are in power well real change happen or stay the same.

I think about my people community, the homeless and the future for my state back at home. So there for I’m not going to jump in thinking change going to happen. But watch and see how this play out back at home. I well continued and never stop my walk onto Canberra to get justice and I well never stop until justice is service for my people and the Australia people against this corporate government. We still must fight for our right and for change against a system who play like they the good guys when they are not. The good fight continued.


Day 187: 10am

I be going live today speak about my family community swan valley that was close down and other by Barnett. The question I be talking about is this new government is going to reopen community already been close down by Barnet. Half of my family die on the street ever seen our community was close down. We what our community swan valley to be reopen some my other half of my family can go home and so we can start fresh and start over again. We just want to go home. That why I was walking for my community and other that are close down and for my people and other who are homeless.


Day 187: 12pm

I feel angry and piss off today i think i need to chill and relax for a bit. Let my mind go back to the happy side again. So i’m just enjoy the view why I can and just setting down loving every moment of it before getting back into the walk again. I’m thinking about home, family, friends and everyone else back at home. So today I giving my elders a call to talk to them about something and they have told me to keep punishing on and get to Canberra to get justice for them and everyone else to. So no more games and no more playing around it time to start speaking to truth it the only way to make this happen and get justice for everyone.
