Comment on Cultural museum for Alice: That’s how it could be done by Aranda.

Good point Elvis.
And to elaborate further: The owners and caretakers of Alice Springs and the surrounding estates continue to bicker amongst themselves about land ownership protocols.
There is a lack of strong, determined leadership to negotiate such proposals that would provide huge benefits both culturally and economically for Aranda people.
Meanwhile to our children, the town and its visitors I’m afraid to say: The “cultural centre of Australia” as we boast to the eastern states will lose out again.
This proposal for the national cultural centre will end up in Canberra, Victoria or NSW, to the people we criticise for having no knowledge or lack culture.
What an oxymoron, eh?
Meanwhile the fantastic photographic and other non restricted collections of Spencer and Gillen, Strehlow and others who researched with old people throughout Central Australia circa 1890-1960, whose knowledge is unquestionable, will remain in the museum archives that they currently occupy, collecting dust while we continue to argue about “who comes from where”.

VIDEO: Watch yourself in the NAIDOC march this morning
OK, so the grandmothers group again bring attention to the fact youth are ending up in detention.
What are they trying to achieve? Are they seeking behavioural change from our youth? Are they themselves heading up any programs or initiatives for youth to engage with?
These kids aren’t ending up in the clink for stealing lollies.
Agreed also with Davo. For one week a year, perhaps celebrate some positive achievements within the community … there are a few.


Price family were sole complainants against Cocking & Satour 
Props to Erwin and Kieran for your ongoing reporting on this story.
In the past anyone who dared speak against Jacinta and the Prices have been attacked or slandered, sent abusive texts or DMs online. Let’s hope other local and Territory media / radio outlets show some initiative and shed light on this as well, given they have been the Prices’ biggest fans.
Surely, those who have blindly followed Jacinta and her supposed “truth telling” can see things for what they are now. The Easter Bunny isn’t real people, sorry.
Unfortunately, Jacinta has thrived off this community’s desperation in seeking answers to long term social issues that exist in this region.
Jacinta and the Price trio (coz’ you never get just one) are NOT the answer.
She has been on the fast track to success merely because she is Indigenous but lacks education and experience in any of the matters she talks so openly about.
Supporters should have done their due diligence on this one.
The last thing we want to see is another spoilt, hypocritical, self serving politician who talks a big game yet delivers nothing. This region deserves better than that.


Jacinta Price’s bluster: parents not mentioned
Misleading her Facebook followers? This isn’t new!
Sorry “followers,” you’ve been misled the entire time!
Folly, Jacinta, nothing but folly!


Jacinta Price spits dummy
Re Alan: Naw, it sucks when you find out your hero ain’t all she’s cracked up to be, hey?


Jacinta Price spits dummy
Hello … where are all her blind supporters who profess she “speaks the truth”.
Send this through to The Australian, Herald Sun, Mark Latham, KAK etc.
Unfortunately Erwin, you are another in a long line who have been on the receiving end of her bully tactics.
Another dummy spit from someone who lacks maturity and clear thought processes, yet seeks fame, fortune and self promotion.
