14908225_1884606045095916_3232392658533933231_n-1When 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.

14906841_1674252162885197_8750057346895803166_nClinton’s Crossing

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!

15000587_1885086021714585_371776995511668234_o“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

CtfS9erVIAA_ZxhHey guys, Admin Gee here!

Special thanks to The Kalgoorlie-Boulder Council for the BBQ, Headspace for their kind and generous donations and their cooking skills, and Todd and the copped.io Facebook community for mailing us sneakers from interstate!

DSCN0134A warm welcome to all our new followers and a huge thank you to everyone that has messaged, shared and donated. We really appreciate this support.

Things are starting to get serious now for Clinton and his Walk for Justice. The fundraising project was carefully budgeted to ensure that we can have all that is required to keep Clinton and the support crew safe, dry, warm, fed and watered.

7-779Behind the scenes we have a small team responding to queries, keeping The Website and Facebook updated and generating the amazing support that you are all offering but now we need your help.


It wont be long before Clinton is out of phone range and we are very keen to purchase a satellite phone to ensure that we are able to communicate with Clinton at all times. As you can imagine, knowing they are all safe and well is vital.


Our target is $6500 and we have been pledged $4030, which is absolutely amazing and we thank you !!!
