Comment on National Aboriginal art gallery in the wide open spaces? by Arunta Man.

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.

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.


Define gallery purpose before picking a site: Bruce Walker
I still do not understand how this one building is going to make our little town the inland CAPITAL.
What has this man gunna do done for our town?
Nothing, and he is listening to interstaters who do not live here.
Be honest the only thing Chief Minister Adam Giles did for Alice with roads was to put money aside for Santa Teresa.
Where did that money disappear to?
I drove on the road when contractors started construction which all of a sudden STOPPED.
My suggestion is, build both the ART and CULTURAL centres on the grounds of the Appropriate Technology centre to have the tourist all in one place.
These people are worried about their money. IT’S ALL THERE.
