Day 307: 6am

Friday 14th July. On our way to Eden.

The mountains were covered in a smoke haze in the distance. The opening in the clouds aloud the sun to beam the light down, also along the slope.

That evening we had a visit by our two walkers Moureen and Ileine (hope my spelling in right) sister’s. Once again a story of a life in the bush to evade the Government process of taking children away.

Then came their story of life on their Country and the struggle with Government over the land on their Country. The same process and talk from Perth to Cann River. I had also received a photo to pass on. I have chosen this opportunity to pass it on.

The photo is a heart with the First People’s, Colours, of the First Nations of this Continent. The heart represents the Mother’s love. Mother to children, children to Mother and one of Country and the Earth. Culture. The impact of the Empire is still been used today, the Mother’s are still suffering today.

Theses two sisters, soft speaking women talk and speak the same, as all the people across the Continent. A great Continent of people’s with, an out dated Government values, that are not representing the people. – Noonie

[Admin Luke] Last year this young Gunditjmarra warrior and supporter of Clinton’s Walk, Isiah, spent all his saved up moneybox money – $140 of his own pocket money – to put on a feed for homeless mob in Fitzroy.

This year, Isiah saved his money and used it to buy a new pair of boots for Clinton to wear the walk to Canberra. What a little legend!

After learning this story, we thought it only right to help the young fella continue his tradition of helping the homeless.

And so this afternoon, we will be co-hosting a public event with Democracy in Colour in honour of Isiah. The event will be held at Victoria Trades Hall and will provide free food for those in need.

This is also an opportunity for homeless folk and supporters to come along and get a chance to meet with Clinton.

Catering is being generously provided by Lentil As Anything.

Come along and support a great kid, have a great feed and meet with Clinton and the Walk For Justice team before they leave Naarm.

Isiah is a young Gunditjmarra warrior and supporter of my Walk, Isiah, spent all his saved up moneybox money – $140 of his own pocket money – to put on a feed for homeless mob in Fitzroy.

This amazed me that this little warrior Isiah saved his money and used it to buy a new pair of boots for me to wear the walk to Canberra. What a little legend!

I what to thank little Isiah from the bottom of my heart how amazing and great you are and yet your so young and your doing amazing staff for your people in your country area.

Day 240: 5pm

I been thinking about it all day today and I’m going do it. Just going to let everyone know after leaving Melbourne and walking to Sydney on the coast line and then on to Canberra. I have decided that I going to get a bag of Forrest seed and take it with me. So I can planet Forrest seed on the coast line all the way to Sydney where i be walking than planet seed from Sydney all the way to Canberra.

So in a couple of year this Forrest seed well grow into a Forrest tree. It be a trail of Forrest tree I have planet from Melbourne to Sydney on the coast than from Sydney to Canberra a trail. In a couple of year time I be retracting the walk again going over it. But in that time I be driving and i going plant tree again from Perth all the way to Melbourne. So From Perth to Kalgoorlie I be planting Forrest seed. Then from Kalgoorlie to port August it well be oranges and apples seed. Than from port Augusta to Melbourne it well be Forrest seed again.

So in couple of year time it well be a trail of tree from Perth all they way to Canberra showing people and future generation that I walk it thought that way and when you look it up on good map you well see a line of tree that well show you i walk it that way and i have planet them and on top it well look like a snake. I just what to give something back to this world and do it for the planet and wildlife.

On top if people get lost in the desert area they have a line full of trees of Oranges and apple to eat and it well help people with fluid. So I going do this from Melbourne to Sydney than on to Canberra I be planting a line full of Forrest seed and I going to plant this seed 1km a part. I wish I did this at the start but that o.k

What you guys think of this idea, I just what to give something back to his world before I die.

Day 240: 9pm

Jimmy Clements at the opening of the federal parliament in Canberra in 1927.
Photograph: Sam Hood/Collection of the State Library of New South Wales

[Admin Toby] On this day 9th May 1927 “Jimmy Clements and John Noble, made a big effort to turn up for the opening of the provisional parliament house in Canberra nine decades ago.

The Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House has marked the 90th anniversary with a special exhibition, featuring research by its historian Stephanie Pfennigwerth, on the two Indigenous men. Clements (Nangar or Yangar) and Noble were Wiradjuri men from southern New South Wales, both aged about 80.

Each walked at least 150km to the Federal Capital Territory before the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth), who formally opened the new federal parliament on 9 May 1927.

They were well-known throughout New South Wales and the capital territory.

Non-Indigenous people knew Clements as “King Billy”, consistent with the condescending settler tradition of bestowing royal title upon blackfellas they considered compliant, important, peaceful or useful. He was a respected elder and Lore man – a “clever man” – who performed Wiradjuri “burbong” (initiation), and a showman with the boomerang and spear.

Noble, also a clever man, was, like Clements, a renowned performer at country shows and football matches with boomerangs. He liked to say things were “marvellous”.

Noble has shorter hair and a more closely cropped beard. This certainly describes Clements and paints a man whose act was performative – letting it be known sovereignty was never ceded, eyeballing the duke and courting of media attention.

The National Archives of Australia describes it as “possibly the first recorded instance of Aboriginal protest at Parliament House in Canberra”. It was the precursor to so much activism – from the 1938 Day of Mourning, the fight for recognition and much else in 1967, and the ongoing battle for land rights that manifested with the enduring tent embassy, just across the road, on Australia Day 1972.

The sign out front reads: Sovereignty never ceded.”

Excerpts from the article:

Day 241: 10am

We have left Coonalpyn and on our way out. – Noonie


Day 241: 10.30am

This illegal foreign government now attacking my country men and country women in two different way to take away our sovereign right and giving us less power over our lands.

One way is that this government is spending million of dollars of tax payer money on this recognition campaign. It to make people of Australia none first nation people think we what recognition and they doing this by showing you on our first nation football player, TV show and using our own people in political that we support recognition and that Australia should vote for it so we can have rights an be part of the constitution.

Put little you many know is that when my people come a part of a foreign constitution that was not from here we become British subject and what it dose it take away our sovereign right. My people what to let everyone know that we do not what recognition and we don’t support it. They a liein to everyone saying we support it but we don’t. We a sovereign people of this land and we what to keep our sovereign right and they are trying to take it away thought this recognition campaign you see on T.V with letter of R.

Second of all as you many know couple month back noongar won native title back thought the federal court and stop a deal between western Australia governments and South west land sea council. What it was is the western Australia government was trying to take away our native title in south west sell it of for 1.3 billion dollar and was trying to take our right to land an sovereign right way.

But back at home in Perth our people stood up and said no to this deal. Our people said we not give away our right for 1.3billion dollar and we going to keep our land. So noongar took western Australia government and South west land sea council to court and won. It took a year before hearing we won in court. But little we know is that the federal government was watching this case known that the western Australia was going to lose this case.

After a week later the federal court said native title stay and thought out the ILUA meaning Indigenous Land use agreement out the window ad native title stay in south west. A week later federal government in Canberra when on TV announced they was going to water down native title and give mining company more protection on land from native title. We what land right not mining Right.

The federal government in Canberra knew they was going to lose this case and now they trying to water down native title across Australia. So they can give more power to billion air over mining the land. What world are we living. What this government meat to be for the people or for this billion air. To me this government has lose it way and forgot who they mean to repcent when voted in.

So now you know this government is not for it people they for billion air and they attack my people in two different way. To take away our sovereign right and destroy native title a cross Australia to give more protection to billion air mining company.

This has to stop and now you know.


Day 241: 11am

Bit icey this morning – Garry


Day 241: 2.30pm

From Coonalpyn to our lunch break – Noonie


Day 241: 6pm

From lunch to Tintinara, were we have been invited to stay overnight at a house, a lovely lady we had meet just before Adelaide, an invite on the side of the road, much appreciated. – Noonie


Day 241: 8.30pm

As Many of you may already know or may not know I am Clinton Pryor “The Spirit Walker”.

I started my “Walk for Justice” on the 8th of September 2016, Leaving Perth I started of walking for the justice of my people for the Government forcing of their communities.

It became apparent very quickly that People of all backgrounds are suffering from the long treasonous hand of this corrupted corporate Government, this has now taken my walk to a complete new level and the walk for justice is now a walk for everyone in this country to come together and make a stand against this Government to have them removed or under control by culture council. To allow us to start again for the people and the land so that there will be a safe place for all our children to come and always be run by the people with a governing culture council to oversee and keep the government on the correct path so that what has happened here to our people can never happen again!

There will be a meeting well be held from the 19th to the 21st of May 2017 at the Victorian Tent Embassy at 8 Majorca Rd. Maryborough 3465. Helen Dodds Aboriginal Tent Embassy Victoria.

We are calling on all Sovereign Nations and descendents of the settlers across this great land to come to this meeting in Victoria in the first instance.

There will be more meetings to follow over the next few months for the preparation of what is decided to be done when we arrive at Canberra.

For years many of us have had great ideas to regain our land and our freedom but this Government have always either blocked or they back track on their promises with the agreements made!

Signally we have not had any success on any main stream level. Thus I put to everyone and the reason for this meeting is to bring the people from all over together and share the ideas and with discussion together we all need to continue to Canberra and face this Government head on and do not back down until they have been removed or under control by culture council and we can action our plans to start over in a fairer way for all people to live and enjoy life as it should be.

With all of us standing together with the one common cause, the power goes to the people. Government law no longer takes preference, People are now the law.
Once this has taken place and no doubt this will be discussed in the meetings, it is now they have gone because the people have stated so then the old borders can be put back and all countries can start to look after themselves again but under a new parliament as such elected by the people and Governed by a Cultural Council.

The need for all countries to be represented to have their say and to hear what is said by others is of the highest importance and will be the most important event to ever happen for this Country.

It in our best interest.

So Please come to this meeting or if you cannot come comment your email address so we can send you a copy of video voice recording to you about what happen at the meeting.

Day 238: 1.30pm

It was a great day today going out to Raukkan community meeting everyone and listen to all the story about Raukkan community and it history pass.

The most amazing think of been out their at Raukkan community was to see and meet in person to honor who pass way for all the amazing think he has done in he life Davis Unaipon.

David Unaipon was a well-known Indigenous Australian of the Ngarrindjeri people, a preacher, inventor and writer. Unaipon’s contribution to Australian society helped to break many Indigenous Australian stereotypes, and he is featured on the Australian $50 note in commemoration.

The one think I always learn from David Unaipon was his saying “As a full blood member of my race I think I may be the first – but I hope not to be the last to produce an enduring record of our customs, belief and imagining.”


Day 238: 11pm

Yep we up for it again we going to do a bit of night walking for a little bit until we get tired and than we set up camp to rest. It been a beautiful day of walking today and it a bit cold but we are o.k the more we head south east and the more we get closer to the Victoria broader. It getting more and more cold. We been for the last couple month have been walking none stop thought summer and our body are use to the summer heat. But now we need to train our body to get use to the cold.

When we get closer to the broader of Victoria, we going to start organizing think for Melbourne to start getting think ready for us when we walk into Melbourne. I hope that when we get into Melbourne it well be a power house for this walk to lift it up and get it out there. On top that a lot of the people of Melbourne well join us to march on the street for justice and for change. This is my first time going into Melbourne I never been there before.

Just wanted to thank Ashley Hefron for keeping her promises to her grand mother. Her grand mother has been following me on my walk from the beginning. Sadly her grand mother pass away one month ago. Her grand mother try her best to stay a live to see me when I enter in her country area and was loving my walk because for what I was doing for our people. But she pass away from cancer. Before her grand mother pass away on her last day. She told Ashley hefron to keep a promises to her.

She told ashley hefron to go and come to see me to meet me and talk to me. I was sad to hear this story ashley told me that her grand mother was waiting for me and wanted to see me before she pass on. It breaking me and I was hurt in my heart to hear this.

I just wanted to let people know this walk I when on is not easy I have begin thought a lot of town, community, station and homeland and I have sat down and listen to this story and other issue as well. It is a hard road I’m walking and I’m carrying all this message with me to Canberra for the people and get justice for those who pass on. I only ask if you was walking this road you well understand. Put I’m here to help and I’m going to make sure to get justice for everyone no matter what.

Day 228: 9.30pm

[Guest Post] There are no words to describe how incredible and profound tonight was!

Our family had the great privilege of hosting, the phenonmenal Clinton Pryor and his team for dinner tonight. Thank you everyone that came for your warmth, kindness, understanding, open conversation and for the feeling of kinship that was felt by everyone tonight. My mind has been opened to the many discrepancies that exist in our society but more importantly how little effort it takes to overcome our percieved otherness to each other.

Feeling overwhelmed by the love and respect felt tonight and here’s hoping to many more times together!

Clinton is walking for justice from his home in Perth to Canberra and raising awareness for the injustices that exist in Australia including visiting Aboriginal communities and discussing Aboriginal issues, addressing homelessness and the irresponsibility of Government in addressing these issues. His walk is to bring all people in Australia to stand for justice.

We wish you all the very best for the rest of your journey Clinton – you are truly an inspiration!

Please share and follow Clinton’s Walk for Justice! – Appurva
