Day 94: 5.30pm
I spend the today walking around Uluru, much was not to be photographed, but you would need to be at its base to see what it is really like. Some places can be photos but to be there, is to see that it is Uluru, not the rock in the center of Australia.
The walk track takes you to very peaceful and beautiful places, that to be there, then you can describe it in your words. To be there is to see Uluru as it should be seen. Even had a walk on Uluru, apart of the track allows you to walk on it, if highs are scary for you, then this is good for you, not very high, but don’t trip over, it is solid rock.- Noonie

O.k need to let everyone know that I not just walking across a whole country because I want to live a normal life. People need to realise that behind closed door I being doing a lot of work on having meeting with elders and local leader about want need to be done in community and the land how to make think right for my people. The paper work, video recording and message from elders. I don’t load it up on Facebook.
Why because one it no one else business but my own and two the government is watching me to see want I’m up to. I will step it up soon when I reach Uluru and start explain more about what I have seen, hear and understand in community that need to be done for elder and for the people.
All the paper work and video record is keep secret because I need to write it all down to put in a powerful speech to speak on community behalf and how the government has failed our people in community, town, city and in this country.
People need to also realise that this walk for justice is bigger than what it is. This why a lot of non Indigenous people have join this movement same as Indigenous people under one think. The walk for justice because there no justice for the people of Australia until some one stand up for the people and that want I’m doing by walking across the country for.

Day 57: 6pm
When we was at Wiluna. This two statue is to honor the last of the nomad’s. The two old people who was find out in the Gibson Desert name where Warri and Yatungka. Warri and Yatungka were believed to be the last of the Mandildjara tribe of the desert nomads to live permanently in the traditional way. Their deaths in the late 1970s marked the end of a tribal lifestyle that stretched back more than 30,000 years.
I think about this two amazing people that they name well live on through out the century to come and that our people well know that this two were the last two people in our culture way. Who live the old way before our people change in to this modern world we live now. I still reading the book and I up to page 52 now and it starting to make me understand more about this two and how they live they life before passing on.
Day 57: 6.30pm
Well better rest up good tonight and watch a movie because tomorrow time to get back into the walk. We had our two day rest at the road house and it time to start getting back into the walk again to make our way to Warburton town than. Where we can rest up for other two days and have a talk with the elders and locals before heading off to Uluru. I cannot not wait to see Uluru. She going to be something to see from a long way. I’m just go straight to Uluru and hug it like no tomorrow.

A Nyungah man is walking cross Australia
A Nyungah, Clinton Pryor is his name
This south-west man is walking now for justice
He’s travelling and calling for a change
He’s walking from Perth across to Canberra
He’s walking, to get a message through
You might not know it ….
You might not know him…
But he’s walking Australia for you too
You might think a Nyungah walking in the out- back
Would hardly make a scratch upon a wall
But first week he got a call to say sorry
That the “Sorry” said had made no change at all
And as leader spoke to leader on the cell phones
The sun rose higher in the sky
A Nyungah man is walking his country
Walking proud… .and asking why
A Nyungah man is walking Australia
He’s one of the willing and the few
They’re walking all the way to Canberra
Where politicians do…. what they do
He’s gathering the stories of his people
And listening to the stories of the land
Sending out a daily record on his face book
So people in the city understand
Exposing the failures in the system
Learning of the sorrow and the pain
The growing list of promises broken
The struggle, always struggle with no gain
A Nyungah man is crossing Australia
And calling for a right to the wrongs
For an end to injustice and the failure
To find a way that we can all belong
A Nyungah Man is walking this country
He’s walking to get a message through
You might not know it ….
You might not know him…
But he’s walking Australia for you too.
Sometimes days without a signal
Solid road becomes dirt track
But TV News and film crews
Are now crossing the out-back
To Leanora, Laverton,
And Warburton as well
And Clinton’’s walk for Justice
Is the story that they tell
He’s walking in the heat of the desert
Through the centre and on past Uluru
You might not know it ….
You might not know him…
But he’s walking Australia for you too
Day 58: 12.30pm
[Admin Jake] One of Clinton’s friends and supporters had been discussing a pair of painted up steel capped boots for Clinton.
About two to three weeks ago, Marcia sent her finished artwork off from Queensland to her partner Wazza in Perth. Wazza and his Dad then drove the boots out to Clinton over the space of a couple of days, past Kalgoorlie and handed them over to Clinton. Below are a few beautiful pics that only just touch on the story.
The boots also accompanied a letter from Ngallagunda remote community which Clinton is reading in one if the photos, which they wish for Clinton to present to Mr Turnbull in Canberra.
Thank you to Marcia, Wazza and Wazza’s Dad and the Ngallagunda remote conmunity and everyone else that contributes to Clinton’s journey.
Much love! You are all fantastic!
“These shoes were donated to bring the situation at ‘Ngallagunda Remote Aboriginal Community’ to the public. They have tried to silence us through threats and intimidation but the world needs to know what is happening on these cattle stations and how morally bankrupt people are actively and persistently working to take over our aboriginal run stations. If there is someone reading this who has any kind of legal or social background that can lend advise or time the mob at Ngallagunda will welcome conversation with you. Pm me and I can put you in touch with them. Thank you for all the kind words also. And Clinton, you’re a legend – you will go down in history.” – Marcia
Day 59: 7am
[Admin Toby] Orders for the first batch of Clinton’s Walk Supporter Shirts are open until Monday 14th November in order to secure your delivery for early December. Please visit the shop to order! Message or email for more details.
Had the pleasure of spending the day walking with Clinton Pryor who has quickly become one of the most inspirational people I have ever met. I’ve been following Clintons journey the last 14 days as he walks from WA to Canberra to meet with the PM to seek treaty and justice for First Nation people’s.
This walk will be studied by my kids in time to come and will be up there with Mabo. I feel honoured that myself and one of my boys had this opportunity to be apart of history to join Clinton on this journey and I certainly will be by his side when he reaches Alice Springs and Canberra.
With all the media publicity, I find it hard to believe that no one has offered to purchase him shoes! Hopefully the new shoes I got him will get a few miles.
Clinton will be addressing the town of Kalgoorlie on Tuesday and calling for calm, and reminding the town what reconciliation is all about.
One of my favourite parts of the day was sitting around on the side of the highway in the middle of the desert, drinking tea and reciting parts of Forrest Gump!
Clinton and crew arrived here today.. the kids walked up to the rise and greeted him and we had some refreshments waiting and a welcome to yilkahomeland lovely to meet him and get to chat 😊
