Comment on Custodians’ faith in sacred sites authority destroyed by Penangke.

I can just see Damien acknowledging the custodians at the official opening of this fiasco. Or will he keep his mouth shut and just cut a ribbon around his integrity.

Custodians’ faith in sacred sites authority destroyed
So are you saying Elvis that we shouldn’t listen to our grannies, respect the position of those senior people with cultural knowledge? Forget what the grandfathers said and listen to the grandsons?

You need an education, Elvis. Apmereke-artweye and Kwertengele speak for country.


Custodians’ faith in sacred sites authority destroyed
Many people including our mayor, elected council and government members, the chief minister and others stand up at the start of all their events and acknowledge the Arrernte people and the custodians of this country. Do they mean it or is it just an empty gesture? Standing against this waste of money, this damage to a sacred site and our unique cultural heritage is a fine opportunity to really acknowledge the Arrernte people custodians and country. Where are you Damien etc?

Paech ‘vehemently opposed’ to Ilparpa transport hub
A person very close to this operation said a month or so ago, I don’t think the people of Ilparpa are happy with us at the moment, but the government just needs to get its zoning right.
I.e. we have established an industrial business there so the law should change to suit us.


The gallery drama: Will there be a happy ending?
It is important that an indigenous gallery / cultural centre have the support of Indigenous people but as to its location one would think that that decision should be mainly directed by apmereke-artweye and kwetungurle.
Under cultural protocols they are the ones with authority to speak for country. It is very well documented who they are. There seems to be little or no respect for, or consultation with them at present.
