Comment on NAIDOC celebrates the Wild Dog Story of Alice Springs by Michael Liddle.

Terrific day down at the council lawns where the significance of the theme (songlines) for NAIDOC week was displayed by all the speakers and artists who performed that day.
One thing I would like to highlight is that the Akngwelye (dog) story performed was brilliant and was very well spoken and presented in the form that was open and available for all to watch and hear, well done to all.
The Akngwleye (dog) story belonging to this place Tyerretye is very important. The true story of the battles and the disagreements that took place in the Altyerre to create the spectacular landscape that we all live here in Alice Springs belongs to men and people are encouraged to acknowledge this.

Will Aboriginal councillor be blocked from town camps?
Residents of town camps vote for a voice on Alice Springs Town Council (ASAP).
Residents in the municipal area of Alice Springs can’t vote in the Tangentyere Council elections. There is much debate about the direction around town camps and the forward planning on both social and economic benefits that’s to be had about the contribution that they bring to Alice Springs.
A conversation needs to be had between both elected councilors ASAP and it needs to be said that Tangentyere Council sits with in the guidelines of the ASTC. Maybe Mayor Ryan and his councilors need to start walking around on the camps introducing themselves as a start and it includes the Aboriginal elected councilor.

The purpose of this camp at Loves Creek is a realistic and very well thought through solution to the problems that Alice and Tennant are enduring right at this time.
As with any new direction that creates change the project was going to have its teething problems but logic thinking and compromise between the parties has to happen.
The boot camp must remain and improvements to security, lighting, training of staff, increased programmes for the client etc must be a priority in order to address the issues that are causing all sorts of unwanted troubles.
Powers from all parties need to put their differences aside and sit back down and finish what they have started to create long term change to an already sad environment.
