Comment on Alice Festival of Light coming out of the dark by Evelyne Roullet.

Yes, totally agree with Giddyup: The late Wenten and is departed wife Cynthia were neighbors and friends. Their children grew up with mine.
He explained to us that we have to learn the two ways to live in harmony. Respect of cultures was important to him: No judging, only understanding. You cannot be an Yipirinya kid if you do not respect tradition and culture.
Wenten was sympathetic to the needs and interests of the Arrernte and the non-Arrernte.
He also said: “You have to get the right country, get the right Dreamtine Story; don’t get somebody Else’s. Because you’ve got kwertengerle. (Hopefully Jacinta Price will understand.)

The message is clear: It is not women’s business nor men’s business. It is no-one’s business.

Megafauna museum: Locals outnumber tourists
Because I am very curious about all sorts of statistics I rang the museum and asked how those figures are created.
I was told: “We simply ask people if they are locals or visitors.”
Interesting, as I have never been asked.


Megafauna museum: Locals outnumber tourists
Overseas 975; Alice Springs 3279; domestic tourists 1214 with “NT other” (363), Victoria (229) and NSW (225) topping the list.

@TJ: What happens when they talk about sacred sites and cultural issues concerning the women?
In traditional Anangu society, men and women have distinct but equally important roles, performing specific tasks that benefit the whole community.
There are male sacred sites (men’s business) which are forbidden to women and women’s sacred sites (women’s business) which are forbidden to men.
National Park Management Plan 2020: The Working Together painting by Jennifer Taylor Uluru-Kata Tjuta has a central circle representing the park.
The twelve seated figures are the members of the Board of Management: Four pairs of male and female Anangu (the brown) and four Piranpa (the white).

Taxpayer funded firm sends woman bush, unprepared
@ Local 1: I am in total agreement. Ming Lai has a case: Employers have rights and responsibilities regarding workplace health and safety. A duty of care exists to provide for the protection to the health, safety and welfare of workers and others within a workplace.
An employers’ responsibility includes:
• Ensuring workers receive sufficient information, instruction and training in the work that the worker may be required to perform.
• Enabling the worker to perform the work without risk to the health and safety of the worker, or any other person.
