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.

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?

Council shoots Anzac precinct gallery down in flames
Steve I think you’re right. Both completely arrogant and plain stupid just like the previous government. It’s time we stopped voting for either of these inept parties.


Anzac precinct art gallery: Native title issues unresolved
The government in its latest report has admitted to speaking to just one, apmereke-artweye.
There are others.
Also, there is no mention of any consultation with kwetungurle.
If this place is about honoring and respecting Indigenous peoples and culture these people should have been consulted with long before the government started making their plans for Anzac.
But this is not about respect. It is about exploitation.


Gallery should be all set to go
“If developed properly.” Jeff, that’s the thing this has not been developed properly.
There has been no respect for locals. The government chose the site before any of us knew about the plans and has been trying to bully us ever since.
People travelling from OS or interstate are not going to travel all that way and only go to the gallery.
They will visit other attractions and the town centre wherever the gallery is.
Custodians have been developed, ignored, avoided or hand selected.
Two surveys including the governments own have shown a majority for the gallery but against the Anzac site.
There has been no rational reasoning put forward as to why Anzac is the only possible place.
They have no business case, they have no money no idea and not a lot of support.


Voter banned from Parliamentarian’s office
What’s the point of voting for a Labor Party member if they don’t get to represent my interests on an important issue? Who were the eight or so who voted for fracking? How come they get to decide? Why didn’t my member get to represent me, and which way would you have voted, Chansey?
