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.

Dreamtime stories in the palm of your hand
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.

Areas with little or no buffle are slowly being dominated by this weed at a detriment to the biodiversity an natural beauty of these places.
It crowds out other species and grows much thicker than native grasses and leaves a huge fuel load that burns hotter.
Sure we need to take precautions to stop these wildfires but in national parks and areas that are set aside to protect the natural environment buffle needs to be severely controlled if not eradicated.

If we care at all for our environment, biodiversity and parks we would be looking for some way to stop the spread of buffle grass and eradicate it if possible.
