Comment on Alice Festival of Light coming out of the dark by Perrurle.

To Alyeperenye: I don’t think I’ve ever read such ill informed crap in all my life. It is mind boggling how wrong your comments are, and the unfortunate thing is there are so many other Aboriginal people around here who have never bothered to find out the deep intricacies of Anpernerirrentye (kinship) and just how crucial that is to an individual’s links / connection to land, whether it be as an Apmereke-artweye or Kwertengwerle.
Jacinta is not making a claim to be a kwertengwerle for Mparntwe but if she was, either her Atyemeye or Ipmenhe (MF, MM) would have to belong to Mparntwe as she does not have an Arrenge or Aperle (FF/FM).
That goes for anyone.
Just living here or growing up here does not imply you have any connection at all to the traditional estates.
Penangke rightly points out that unless your Aperle, Atyemeye or Ipmenhe were apmereke-artweye for Mparntwe and belonged to the Kngwarraye/Peltharre subsection or someone further back on your family tree did, then you have no claim.
Also, unless you are knowledgeable, partake in ceremonies and the ongoing maintenance of country, culture, sites, songs etc of a traditional estate, then you have a very shallow claim compared to those that do!
You demonstrate the problem with some of our people today. They take a non-Aboriginal world view and try to adopt it and massage it to suit their needs, whether it be for monetary gain, an outstation, or anything else just because they think they are “Traditional Owners”.
This is an insult to the people who live and breath their culture and languages, who understand traditional governance and kinship and who are the real apmereke-artweyes and Kwertengwerles. These are the people who should be listened to when it comes to talking for estates.

Interesting also that Ms. Price was involved at all. She lays the boots into her people / culture for all to see on social media and on TV and was recently quoted on a prominent talk back show that “We should forget about 40,000 years (of culture)…”
She doesn’t know what team she plays for.

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.
