Also be asking traditional own around Canberra about it to. I what use the piece of the rock that was giving to me from Reggie Uluru to bury it with the tree so it can become a part of the tree. The tree I what to plant well be a symbol of unity between all the 2,000 first nation clan group and a symbol of wisdom knowledge, healing, respect, strength and courage. But most of all united as one for our people, for our culture, for our ancestor, for our law, for our child and for this country itself.

So our people can be proud of who they are and proud of been a part of the longest living culture on earth.

[Guest Post] My son Kane is so proud to be Aboriginal. He was so thrilled to have met Clinton Pryor and his deadly support guys Gary, Brett and Noonie. Proving that team work and Unity will get us on the right road to justice for people in this country, while giving hope and encouragement to our youth – Tanya


Day 256: 10am

I would like to have my say on this I would like to know who representing the Noongar nation the 22 country group and 40,000 of us. Those who got chosen to represent us must think about everything about the history and struggle of our pass in the south west against this government and before that. If is our council group the SWLSA council I going to let everyone know they don’t represent our people there where the once who try to give away our native title for 1.3billion but our people managed to stop it in the federal country so we keep our native title.

The think is as sovereign people we don’t what recognise from this corporate government because they not sovereign government no more and we don’t what to treaty with them. A treaty must come and only come from two sovereign nation group. If we treaty with this government we only have to look at the history of other country like our brother and sister in American and our New Zealand brother and sister what they going thought.

We must think a better way my people a cross this great land and there is a better way to save our culture, language, secret site our old people left for us to look after it and keep it alive. So hope our people in Uluru and other country group say no to recognise and say no to a treaty.


Day 256: 11.30am

Getting stronger and stronger every day on this walk. Making me think about all the community we been thought and everyone Else back at home in Perth and how family, our people, friends and other stood Strong and proud to fight for justice for our self and for every one else. We fought for our right as people and stood for our future to rebuilt after some much was lose. There well be a time when we rebuild what we lose not just for my people but for everyone else to who live here. That everyone shall live together in harmony and peace. But the future is for us to make something of if.

Day 237: 8am

[Admin Toby] ABORIGINAL SOVEREIGNTY, Justice, the Law and Land by Kevin Gilbert. Please download this FREE iBook, read and share, share share!

It contains a brilliant analysis of ‘reconciliation’, international obligations and the Draft Treaty. Published in 1987, it is absolutely current in the core context of where Aboriginal people are today, as we continue to advocate for our long-denied Sovereign Rights as the First Nations people of this continent.

This Aboriginal Sovereign Position, Legal Entitlement and Draft Treaty was written after consultation with Aboriginal Members of the Sovereign Aboriginal Coalition attended at Alice Springs on 19th to 21st June 1987, and incorporating the advice of the Aboriginal Sovereign Communities throughout these, our Sovereign Domains.


Day 237: 9am

We stayed at Arnold Gollan Waili for the night, then down to the Park and now heading out of Murray Bridge. – Noonie


Day 237: 9am

This system that this government has put on us all. It time we smash it down and rebuild it in a way for the people to control it. No more greedy man in suit to control our life and tell us how we should live it. We need a new system to be in place where this piece of a government need to be under control by the sovereign people and Australia people. It time for the governor general to leave Australia and be replace by a culture council who run by sovereign people from each country area and also run by our brother and sister who live here with us an who share this land with us. Aboriginal law must set on top of the white man law because our law is the law of the land.

As long the governor general is here who control the government we are all slave to a system that control our live. It time for the governor general to leave and be place by culture council who run and control by sovereign people and Australia people to. So this government dose not get out of hand or do what ever they like. Any law they try pass thought on us we as a people can stop it and tell them to take it back or change it. It time the power is giving back to the sovereign people that we lost 230 year ago. The time has come and it is the right time for this to happen. It cannot wait any longer or it well be to late for this to happen.


Day 237: 10am

On the Princess Highway on our way. – Noonie


Day 237: 12pm

Time to head on the hwy way on Princess hwy. We left Murray Bridge and now heading to the next town call Tailem Bend. If people what to know where we are we be walking on princess hwy all the way to Melbourne going thought all the town on Princess hwy. We couldn’t walk on the hwy from Adelaide to Murray Bridge because it was a Fwy and to dangerous for the team and I. Also the minister of transport told us we couldn’t walk on the Fwy. So we when the thought the back way to Murray Bridge town but now it safe from Murray Bridge on would to Melbourne.

Now another think came to mind that we have notest that there been division going on ever since we left Perth. The team, the admin team and my self what to let people know if people not getting a lone with someone we talking to or organizing think with them about the walk into town or city for a event. Also if the person trying to organize think with us and not working with a person that they don’t get a lone with put what to organize think with us. I going to let you know.

Don’t get angry with me,my team or my admin team because we are here on this walk to bring unity and here to work with both group on this walk. This walk is about working together on one goal and that is getting think done right for us all against a system who what to control us. We what unity not division so let make this work.

So please from my self, from my team and from my admin team if there any division going on, on where we are or who we going to work with now on, on this next couple month on where we walking. Please don’t put my self, my team and admin team and mainly my walk in between. We are here to work with everyone and here to make this right o.k guy cheers !!!

Day 229: 3pm

Today with elder Dookie O’Loughlin who telling me story about the Dreaming story of the Kaurna – Tjilbruke, the water holes, animals and lore, and it’s connection from north to south. I just wanted to thank elder cookie newchurch for taking his time to see us and to talk with about some thing

[Guest Post] The man that Brotha Clinton is seated next too has spent the most part of his life, dedicated his life in fact to the restoration of Narungga and Kaurna culture and language.
He was a lecture at Tauondi for almost 30 years, ran his own classes teaching language and culture to his people. He did this with Mission School education. Not only did he teach it at Tauondi but took it out to our children in the schools, worked collaboratively with Councils around the Adelaide plains area to keep cultural/sacred sites safe and protected while also including the importance of these sites to the Kaurna and Narungga peoples. He laid our claim to this land with whites by protecting those sites, that we have been here thousands of years. He protected the proof of our existence and connection to dispel white myths.
He was the nucleus in establishing the Kaurna Cultural Living Centre which also includes Tjilburke Dreaming Story, Buthera’s Rock on Narungga land, Walk the York. All the language programs, and knowledge of how our lands was formed, plus many more programs to do with culture to many to name. This man, who is the only Narungga/Kaurna man alive today who is walking cultural library for Kaurna and Narungga. When our cultures was almost on the brink of extinction He gave its back its life. All those others that teach culture today can only teach because of him.
After all his dedication and commitment this year my father Kevin (Dookie) O’Loughlin will receive his Doctorate in Education and he deserves recognition for his life long endeavors. Although he is 70 he continues not only to promote our culture but also fights in the background for justice for his people. My family and I thank you for coming/passing through our country. My father said he is very proud of you and what your doing. – Ky Ky
