Comment on Hetti Perkins on the legacy of ‘Australia’s artistic heritage’ by Just Saying.

“With the right information and expert advice, the Aboriginal community should grasp the opportunities and move forward with them.”
Interesting statement! I would have thought that those local Arrernte people who are strongly connected to their culture, are the ‘experts’ and perhaps whoever is driving this needs to get the right information and expert advice from these people and accept their viewpoint. Not the other way round.
It’s a government plan I believe and they have a great track record in listening to Expert advice, especially from Arrernte people, not!
Government also don’t mind trying to force Arrernte people to grasp opportunities that they are not interested in and that often have no benefit for them.

“It is critical that they are partners to the project, whether it is one owner for the site or not because there is a range of issues.”
One thinks it would be critical for traditional owners to be partners too, not feeling alienated and disrespected as they are now and as are many in the broader community.
There are a range of issues and people that the government are choosing to ignore.


Boundless Arrogance, says Opposition
Boundless arrogance just like the CLP. Vote independent.
