Liddle resigns as chairman of Lhere Artepe
No thank you Perrurle. I have my original copy I ordered with the original footage. I am big noting myself about my cultural heritage and strong language background. I grew up out in the bush with my families and learnt everything about my land, stories, language and the family kinship connection to country.
Unlike you who grew up in a suburban town of Alice Springs and chose to live like a white person and not have anything to do with full blood countrymen.
I bet you say the simple greeting words in Arrernte! People like you think you know it all cause you think you speak two or three words in Arrernte. Ayenge Angkentye Arrernte Angkeme, unte-me Anthenhe-le Angentye Akaltye-irreke.

To: Perrulle and Michael Liddle,
I’m in the middle of my research right now. Thank you for being concerned about me. Very interesting video I’m viewing at the moment. You might know this one, it’s called “The Changing Race”. I will get back to you with my replies. Goodnight for now, hope that bed bugs don’t bite 😉

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.
