[Admin Toby] Part of NITV ‘You Are Here’ tomorrow night!

In Connection to Country we are first shown the Burrup Peninsula which is home to the oldest art in the world. Outdating the pyramids and Stonehenge by thousands of years, what should be an area that is protected and highly valued by the nation has been decimated by nearby mining and neglect by the government.

With reports for many years about the importance of the site and the continued destruction in the area it’s a heartbreaking reality for the Aboriginal community who have recently learned that along with this site, over 2000 other sites once registered as sacred have been deregistered without consultation with community by the Western Australian government.

“They de-registered those sites by stealth, we don’t know how long it took them. One of the Ministers found out by accident that all these sites were being de-registered. They wanted to put a new classification on all of these sites that stated that they had to have a regular activity on these sites to be called a sacred site but – who decided that? It certainly didn’t come from Aboriginal people, it’s something that they have come up with overnight to fast track all those mining approvals.” Mowarin says.

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.
