Comment on CLC members want forensic probe into their organisation by Russell Bray.

Well said June, more of it. Great. ho owns the land?
The other week I saw the CEO of Land Management NT Government in the office of birth deaths and marriages.
The conversation was about a caveat to put on the 16 Mile outstation to stop Central Land Council kicking my family off.
The CEO told me that a caveat would be useless because no one owns the Freehold Land. Central Land Council is just the caretaker of the land trust which comes under the name of Thenge Lhere which is a corporation under ORIC in Canberra and they do not own the land.
The land belongs to all the Aboriginal people from Northern Arunta for the deed is for everyone who has an interest in their ancestors’ land.
So what gives Bob Gosford, lawyer at Central Land Council, the authority to go to an executive meeting with our names on the agenda and not invite us to fight for our rights?
The bit of Stock Route, 4000 hectares, which is part of Burt Plain, belong to the Northern Arunta People for everyone.

Erwin: I praised the man up for not siding with CLC like the rest of the Aboriginal Corporations Ingerreke, Lhere Artepe, Ilpma and the NT Government who receive government money and not going to the outstations. Maybe I should not have mentioned Amoonguna. I do not know.


CLC members want forensic probe into their organisation
We, the Bray and Tickner family of 16 Mile Outstation (since 2012), have been on the Tangentyere work program for the same period, for which Centrelink provides the money.
On Monday Lesley rang Tangentyere admin to have a bobcat picked up, which he had worked on over the week end.
The person told him no as Central Land Council have blocked 16 mile from the work program. According to Mathew he was told the police maybe removing us from our rightful home land.
Once again Central Land Council have come through the back door not informing the CEO who knew nothing about it and the board to have this passed.
This is racial discrimination against our family. Yesterday (Tuesday) we had a meeting with Walter Shaw, who told us that Tangentyere is there for the people and not Central Land Council.
Walter told us Central Land Council tried it with Amoonguna whom they service as well.
Who do these people think they are?
Bob Gosford (a lawyer from Central Land Council) on the 19th had a meeting with the executive.
I believe the CLC executive board to be acting illegally, because Ngala Kunoth Monks was nominated by three people from the Mbantwe Group of Lhere Artepe and not the full nine directors of Untulye and Ilpme, for these people had trespass notices put on them by the mother.
We were on the Agenda but not invited.

About time our people have stood up for themselves after all these years since the Australian government / Central Land Council took over their lives 1976 and ruined the future of all our children.
BEAUTIFUL. LOVE IT. DO NOT STOP. SHOULD THEY THREATEN YOU WITH TAKING YOU TO COURT FOR YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF THE CEO AND ADMINISTRATION.

National Aboriginal art gallery in the wide open spaces?
Lhere Artepe cannot even raise a proper quorum with all so called Estate Groups still waiting one and a half years.Two things: There are problems with what is happening now with the Art Centre.
Secondly, will it be the same thing with the so called cultural venue?
We, the people especially the true traditional people of this land, would like to know.
Maybe Owen and Harold would like to inform the true people of this land, and not be like of the Gunna Doo Government who are trying to over-run our people.
In all my years I have never heard or seen a write up in the paper of a cultural venue.
Maybe they can put the members’ names in the paper and the vicinity where their cultural centre is going to be built.
I put this to the Central Land Council in 2012 at the Annual General Meeting at Finke and the CEO and white administration wanted nothing to do with it.
Looking at the people at this meeting seems to me no true traditional LAW MEN OR WOMEN were invited. Educated half caste people.


Town Council riven by conflict, lack of leadership
Price, De Brenni are libbers. Eli u are right [CONFLICT] with the visit of Mal. They should have taken leave on those days and of all things us Rate payers forking out the money.[RATES UP]. Front page Advocate and other shots, not a single Aboriginal in sight. This was the purpose of his visit to meet the people who might get her into Lingiari. Just wondering who or if any Western Yuendumu or Papunya Traditional Aborigines apart from mommy got an invite by Price and Scullion who should have paid the bill.


Lhere Artepe director on aggravated assault charge
Lhere Artepe: There are no responsible members, all nepotism and only there for the little money given by Yepereye Shopping Centre.
They cannot even have a meeting to terminate Shane as chair. No quorum.
We are still waiting to meet from two years ago. Repeat back to 2005.


Torrent of toxic Facebook posts after Mall melee
I agree with Mabel. GO back NORTH.
Lhere Artepe since it was taken over by the so called new Acting CEO and directors even themselves do not what goes on.
Some directors saying a new $80,000 plus Toyota for the acting CEO was never passed through the directors of Lhere Atepe.
The old 4×4 was given to a director of Untuye when it should be for the use of every estate group for meetings. NEVER.
Lhere Artepe should be the leaders in dealing with the crime spree that is happening. It is happening again. This so called native title organisation was formed to help all Arunta people and not the chosen few.
ALL ABOUT NEPOTISM and mates on the so-called board. This is not the only black organisation on the way it is run – they are all the same.
I shudder to see when these people get hold of the moneys handed out by the Government in the near future.
The Government should do a investigation on all the organisations – YEARLY – to see how the money is spent.
WHAT A JOKE. These so called traditional men when they speak to people they stab each other in the BACK.


Tom Cleary: Cattle man with a huge smile
I first remember this gentleman when I was a young boy when he visited the Gap Cottages.
He would come every time when in town to say hello and sit with his mates.
I would run into this smiling, gentle man in town these later years shake his hand and sit with him.
A quiet man whom I will never forget.
