Kunye, Feeling so sorry for yourselves are ya … really? Get over it, as you had much to say before.
So what the whole town of Alice is going to read it, they do not care about people’s opinion and their cultural rights in this township.
FYI I am not weak-mind person and I do not engaged in it as a defence to boost my own ego.
I am a strong Arrernte Kemarre woman, I know my place and cultural status.
Kala Mwarre … Kemarre ;D

In Response to: And yes, we are the laughing stock, white people love this when blackfellas bitch and fight. They think it is our culture, and you know what, we play into their hands all the time.
It is YOU who feed on negative gossips. I am so sick of people like you exploiting our culture, language and judge my Arrernte people.
Everyday I see my people suffering because of people like YOU, who tends to help yourself and get into Cultural Corruption to sell off my forefather land.
Making profit to benefit your own lifestyle and guess who the biggest coconut … YOU.
My Arrernte people have NOTHING at the end of the day.
My Arrernte people are lost without strong leaders in this town.
My Arrernte people are living a sad, miserable life because of people like YOU.
My Arrernte people want cultural justice for people who done the things wrongly and that wrongful people created.
Where were these people back in the days? Being big Coconuts living it up in the city … Pathetic sums it all up. Kemarre … OUT :$ angry.

In response to A real TO: Everyone’s got lot to say on here, say it at the meetings, big mouths.
Too much too say.
I do not have a big mouth, besides attending meetings to hear families argue and fights amongst themselves is sad. As for you, you love attending these meetings cause you get high on all the fightings, that’s your drug. As for me, I do not have a big mouth, FYI you do not know me.
White people love this when blackfellas bitch and fight: Cause people like you jump on the band wagon and think that you know all about traditional Arrernte way of life. You do not know the first thing about living in poverty, being called all kinds of names, because of the color of my skin.
Education was the key to my survival here and now, who do you think you judging me are calling me big mouth?
I’m an Arrernte woman, grew up in the bush, not in surburban streets of Alice.
Kemarre … Out 🙂

Housing mess as community fights land council over lease
MacDonnell Regional Council also has a mini store at the Amoonguna MacDonnell Shire Office. This store has food items that are priced too high – double or triple the price of supermarkets in Alice Springs.
Before the take over in 2008, the store was run by the ACI and was opened all day until 4:30pm and also on the weekend on Saturdays.
Now, it closes it’s door whenever it feels like. The prices were indeed affordable for the community people to afford.
Amoonguna Community is situated 20 minutes’ drive from the town of Alice Springs.
MacDonnell Regional Council … or whatever they call themselves nowadays, have a lot to answer for their actions and yet, Central Land Council issued them lease on Amoonguna Land Trust to treat the people, the community residents with insults.

Second region to turn its back on local government
Urapuntja Aboriginal Corporation (UAC) I fully support you. We stand firmly on your (Apmere) ground to fight for what belongs to you.
Self determination and community control was promised at Wave Hill Freedom Day meeting. I was there when the Minister promised this.
Dedication, determinations, devotion and direction is all our people need to support each other.

Central Land Council have been manipulating and dividing my families in order to conquer their own greed for power and lust for money.
Promising my families wealth to purchase vehicles of their dreams.
We have the right as Apmereke Artweye to take our own lease over our land under the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1976.
We had applied for the Lease over Amoonguna Community since 2003/2004 and later in 2013, as we were told that our application is still sitting on their desk.
We are moving towards self determination, self government of the community which we will be capable of looking after.
This we have proven for 13 years before the inception of the Shires. The community people deserve a fair go when it comes to jobs.
Seven years of neglect to the housing our company, ICL, have fixed in seven months, the plumbing, electrical, air conditioners and replaced old stoves in the 57 houses.
We were even denied the use of the community dump to dispose of the old stoves.
MacDonnell Shire at Amoonguna are denying ICL and any person who has contact with them are not allowed to use any facility on the community, because apparently it belongs to them.

Werte Mabel,
You are so quick to criticise Amoonguna Community and the people within. What have these mob done to you, for you to be so bitter with hate?
Trash talking about my cousins as they are the script writers and directors.
Here are other two comments that you made about Amoonguna.

What about the rock throwing? That’s an aboriginal problem too.
Posted October 25, 2016 at 6:06 pm
Penance, hello, ring ring, wake up and smell the roses. Every Aboriginal community has problems with rock throwing.
The director touches everything else regarding problems and Aboriginal life on a community, he comes from one. Give me an example where it doesn’t happen. Also explain why this shouldn’t have been in the script.
