Great speech … tell it straight. Education is the key …

Comment on Anderson says she is not in conflict with Chief Minister on bilingual schooling by Kemarre.

Great speech … tell it straight. Education is the key to success in life. My mum worked two jobs to take care of her two daughters and five nieces just to put food on the table and clothes on our backs. My mum told us that the most important thing in life, if you want to get ahead is to use our manners and always smile. My sisters and I are well educated in Arrernte and English, we are Academic in our own unique, personal and professional fields and always wanting to help others in our community to strive for better lifestyle, education and well-being. We are leaders in our own right, we do not lead, we want to walk beside our community people and lend a helping hand. Thank you Aunty Alison for refreshing my memory of my mother’s hard work and dedication just to see her girls get the best education for their future. My mum’s hard work is remembered, loved and cherished. I totally agree with you 100%. Thank you. Kemarre from Amoonguna Community 🙂

MacDonnell Regional Council also has a mini store at the Amoonguna MacDonnell Shire Office. This store has food items that are priced too high – double or triple the price of supermarkets in Alice Springs.
Before the take over in 2008, the store was run by the ACI and was opened all day until 4:30pm and also on the weekend on Saturdays.
Now, it closes it’s door whenever it feels like. The prices were indeed affordable for the community people to afford.
Amoonguna Community is situated 20 minutes’ drive from the town of Alice Springs.
MacDonnell Regional Council … or whatever they call themselves nowadays, have a lot to answer for their actions and yet, Central Land Council issued them lease on Amoonguna Land Trust to treat the people, the community residents with insults.


Second region to turn its back on local government
Urapuntja Aboriginal Corporation (UAC) I fully support you. We stand firmly on your (Apmere) ground to fight for what belongs to you.
Self determination and community control was promised at Wave Hill Freedom Day meeting. I was there when the Minister promised this.
Dedication, determinations, devotion and direction is all our people need to support each other.

Central Land Council have been manipulating and dividing my families in order to conquer their own greed for power and lust for money.
Promising my families wealth to purchase vehicles of their dreams.
We have the right as Apmereke Artweye to take our own lease over our land under the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1976.
We had applied for the Lease over Amoonguna Community since 2003/2004 and later in 2013, as we were told that our application is still sitting on their desk.
We are moving towards self determination, self government of the community which we will be capable of looking after.
This we have proven for 13 years before the inception of the Shires. The community people deserve a fair go when it comes to jobs.
Seven years of neglect to the housing our company, ICL, have fixed in seven months, the plumbing, electrical, air conditioners and replaced old stoves in the 57 houses.
We were even denied the use of the community dump to dispose of the old stoves.
MacDonnell Shire at Amoonguna are denying ICL and any person who has contact with them are not allowed to use any facility on the community, because apparently it belongs to them.

Werte Mabel,
You are so quick to criticise Amoonguna Community and the people within. What have these mob done to you, for you to be so bitter with hate?
Trash talking about my cousins as they are the script writers and directors.
I DARE YOU TO PUT UP YOUR REAL NAME TO OWN WHAT YOU HAVE STATED NEGITIVIELY ABOUT OTHERS.
IF YOU THINK YOU LIVE IN A PERFECT WORLD, DO SHARE IT THEN.
Here are other two comments that you made about Amoonguna.

What about the rock throwing? That’s an aboriginal problem too.

Penance, hello, ring ring, wake up and smell the roses. Every Aboriginal community has problems with rock throwing.
The director touches everything else regarding problems and Aboriginal life on a community, he comes from one. Give me an example where it doesn’t happen. Also explain why this shouldn’t have been in the script.
