Comment on Land councils acted behind our backs, say pipeline TOs by Russell Bray.

Wakaya people, stick together for it is people power.
David Ross and his white administration, Scullion and Snowdon have ruined Aboriginal lives since 1974, taking our land ruining it, stuffing up our law and culture for our future children.
Where is Francis Kelly and the so called executives who are supposed to be the voice for us?
This is why they, the administration, got rid of Maurie Ryan as chairman for he had education and understood the white cheating ways.
The nine regions were the people that nominated Maurie Ryan as chair and the only people to sack him.
Not David Ross and his lawyer and the way they went about it. Central Land Council put the wrong people on land which caused trouble between our people, and this is what David Ross and the white administration love. Stay as one be strong.

Land councils acted behind our backs, say pipeline TOs
Let us come together as one and organise a people power meeting and march against the Central Land Council, who are the Government, and show Australia and the rest of the world we care for our ancestors’ land.
Central Land Council talk to the wrong people, and not all the right people, for when they were chasing the land at Victory Downs, Mt. Cavanagh, Mulga Park, Kulgera and Umbreara Stations, meeting at Eagle Bore, my wife and a lot of other people were never invited or picked up to vote for or against what they were doing.

Now $90m earmarked for Aboriginal gallery
Last Thursday week Arunta men met on the banks of the Todd down from the Anzac Oval.
A plan was presented and it was completely different from the one I saw in the papers which showed the oval would be part of the building complex.
This plan showed the oval will not be touched at all. The grandstands are to be removed. It was agreed steel a fence would be built around the whole complex.
The meeting was nearly over when it was suggested that the Cultural Centre be built on the same block.
According to a pamphlet from Gunner, do they need 40,000 square metres for the one building and that will take all the school area plus more? So how big a building is this Culture Centre going to be?


Aboriginal gallery is bound to have a stone wall
It all comes back to square 1. $50m would be the cost to rid of the school and maybe build a couple of unisex toilets.
No 2: We still have not got the new grounds to keep the sports men and women to play their sports and the question is how long to wait for the grass to grow and build the facilities?
No 3: Where is the money for the Art Centre?
No 4: Where is the money to build the two new ovals with lights?
We, the people, would like to know, Mr Gunner.


Land rich, jobs poor: Indigenous work around The Rock
I worked there as housing officer, all lies they say they are looking for literate people.
Let’s look at the white rangers that are given the positions over the traditional men or women.
The point is that these Aboriginals can speak good English and they have the knowledge to talk to the tourist who understand.
While there was a ranger’s position, applicants were a white young woman from Sydney and a 40 year old traditional man who spoke good English and a cultural lawman for the land.
I knew the ranger who was on the interview panel and he told me the law man missed out on one question.
My question back to him was what does this woman know about Uluru?
No, we are going to employ this man for six months to teach her all about law and culture and for her to lead the tourist so they will understand all about Uluru. What a lot of crap.
The moral and the truth is that they did not want this man living over the hill in the ranger village. Racist.


Aboriginal art gallery: it’s spin or nothing
Lhere Artepe cannot get a quorum to sack the so called chairman Shane Lindner and if you should ring the office it will be a recording.
The office has not been open for months. Apparently they had a meeting last Saturday with a couple of relatives of the acting CEO to sack two Undoolya directors.
Not a quorum of all directors. All illegal.


Preaching ‘treading carefully’ then sending in the bulldozers
The Kilgariff residents are in for a big big shock come summer. Winds and dust storms galore. Ha,ha. And to see a so called traditional Arrernte boy, Chancey, letting this woman do damage to our land.
