Clinton’s Walk for Justice
By Lynda Nutter October 2016

Clinton’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
Could hardly make a scratch upon a wall
But first week he got a phone 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

To be continued….

Day 72: 9am

15193512_1893222064234314_7135045462408416522_nI have being thought a lot of station, community and town. I have hear all the story, pain, hurt and anger from aboriginal leader’s and elders. I have seen how things are not being done out here and how my people live in station, community and town. There a lot of work need to be done . But the government turn a blind eye and just don’t care what go on. Even if the people ask for help to get think done.

But the think I have notice when I visit station, community and town is that my people know who i’m and want I’m doing. This walk i’m doing it give our people hope, believe, happiness, joy and they known change well come soon.

I hope I well not be the last of my people to walk across on our ancient land sin the traditional time. But I hope this walk well courage more of my people to start believing in them self. That if you got a dream go get it and never give up on it.

15219971_1893822307507623_205875709671260723_n-1Take a look at this. Today I when for a walk to the women centre to have a yarn with the women and go have a cup a tea with them. Also to talk about how think a going for the women in Jameson community. When I was in there I notes the elderly women where making paper.

I when over and ask them what this paper made off. They told me that this paper is made out of spinifex seed’s. I was like no way. It dosing say in our history book we made spinifex paper. But it look like the history book a wrong. The people from the centre desert made paper. They being making paper out of spinifex seed’s seen traditional time and use to write on them to pass letter to other country group.

Also to talk with each other and use them to invited group from other area in to they country for law time, for some one who pass away, invited for dinner and many more think they use the spinifex paper for.

The spinifex paper is very rare and I never seen one before manly in a museum. This the first time I have see one. The Australia museums, western Australia museum and the British museum. Who love to get they hands on one of this and put it in to a museum.

But they won’t get they hands on this. They have to much. This spinifex paper is very rare and made from the elders of the central desert area. This go to show we use to make paper. But made it out of spinifex seed’s. Thank you to the women elders from the central desert for letting me have one.
