Comment on Dreamtime stories in the palm of your hand by Number 19.

OK, Mark Wilson, so black fellas should work entertaining tourists and really as experts on cultural matters but we shouldn’t value it by paying for it.
I suppose most people in the tourism industry would think it would be fair to work for the tourists for a similar rate. Or maybe not.
I think most tourism ventures work under the idea that they have a product, tour, experience, that people want and the tourists pay for that.
And then the business pays the workers at least award rates. That seems fair to me.

Mark Wilson, what about doing it as a job and getting paid for it?
Perhaps white fellas could pay them to protect their / our heritage from outsiders.
And providing a sought after experience for tourists.
I believe its a lack of respect and understanding from the tourism industry and others that make these experiences difficult to find.
Work for the dole is rubbish and people who work anywhere should at least be paid the minimum wage and all other benefits that workers expect.

“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.
