He have told me there going to be 40treaty all up that going to be done in south Australia. But the treaty that going to be written down are all different for each different country group.
I have ask him is this treaty has been written down and can i have a look at it. He told me that the south Australia government has not yet written down this treaty because none of them don’t know how this treaty going to be written down and how the first nation mob in South Australia and state government going to agree on with each other on how this treaty going to be written down. They only starting of this treaty work. But treaty work has not be start yet.
I have told him up front that you need to invited the grass root mob, people from the APYL and other country area who live in south Australia that has the right to be a part of this treaty agreement in south Australia. 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.
