I’m almost there at end of a amazing journey. It has been a great honour to walk in the foot step of my ancients and I walk with prouded for my people and walk on song line that my ancients made for us to follow and understand why they was created in the first place for my people.
I do not know what going to happen when I reach Canberra, but I do know in my heart an mind I must try because it need to be done to change this country and this world we live in. But I hope it well be something that this country will never forget and it well help change this country way to do better to build a better country and a better world we live in.
All that matter now is to speak the truth from the heart to make this men in suit and everyone else who live here to change they way and do better than they know them self now.
I hope in year to come people well talk about the walk for justice that a man who was just young walk across a land thought different country for his people and for everyone else. Walk all the way to the capital city call Canberra to speak the truth and send a message he collected from his people and from every one else on this journey that made him did it in the first place.
The walk well live on and the name the spirit walker well live on when I go and pass on. A man who walk across a country bring hope and change and all the way to capital city to tell men in suit to change they way because he believe and he believe in a dream could made a difference.

Day 277: 8pm
I’m proud to be part of a culture that’s been here since the creation of the Dreaming. Our people survived through the hard times back in the 1700s and 1800s and early 1900s and we’re still here. Our culture is getting stronger now. I’m really proud to be a sovereign man on this land that we all stand on.
Being forced off our ancestors’ lands into missions, to live life the European way when we lived our way for 60,000 years, traditional way with the land, looking after the land … being forced away, it hurt a lot of our people so badly. We still have to battle against a system that is doing its best to take away our sovereignty rights, where we’ve become British subjects, but we are not British subjects, we are people of this land that lived here for thousands and thousands of years, and we don’t want to become a part of a system that has only been here for 229 years. We want to mingle in with the modern world, but we just don’t want to give away our rights as sovereign people.
Our people should have access to what we had always for 60,000 years – to land, to hunt, to gather food, to teach our kids our language, our culture, and also to teach about this country’s past, and educate our young generation that our people had to go through so much to survive. We want to keep our sovereignty and we want to push for treaty talks.
We allow everyone else to have their religions and beliefs, temples and churches and mosques, but what about us? Why aren’t our beliefs being well respected? Sacred sites, that’s our church. We don’t go and blow up a church or blow up a mosque or blow up a temple, why demolish our sacred sites? We just want things to be done properly and not be treated like we’re garbage. i want to see the power given back to the people.
