Comment on Torrent of toxic Facebook posts after Mall melee by Arunta Man.

I agree with Mabel. GO back NORTH.
Lhere Artepe since it was taken over by the so called new Acting CEO and directors even themselves do not what goes on.
Some directors saying a new $80,000 plus Toyota for the acting CEO was never passed through the directors of Lhere Atepe.
The old 4×4 was given to a director of Untuye when it should be for the use of every estate group for meetings. NEVER.
Lhere Artepe should be the leaders in dealing with the crime spree that is happening. It is happening again. This so called native title organisation was formed to help all Arunta people and not the chosen few.
ALL ABOUT NEPOTISM and mates on the so-called board. This is not the only black organisation on the way it is run – they are all the same.
I shudder to see when these people get hold of the moneys handed out by the Government in the near future.
The Government should do a investigation on all the organisations – YEARLY – to see how the money is spent.
WHAT A JOKE. These so called traditional men when they speak to people they stab each other in the BACK.

Country Liberal Party: custodians ignored on gallery
Jack, you hit the right tune mate.
We, the true traditional owners have no say in this issue.
The CEO of Lhere Artepe (LA) and the chairman have never called an AGM or a special general meeting all these years where all the estate groups could have a say on the matter.
The chair of Ilpme, Fabian Conway, has never been notified when the LA Chair Shane Lindner, CEO Robert Campbell or Graeme Smith were nominated for these positions.
This is about government representatives trying to win a seat and then forget us.
In the Advocate Owen Cole and Harold Furber were meeting with government and others but no Aboriginal owners. The same crap: Leave them out of it.
To stop all arguments let’s look at the Aboriginal land that these three people tried to sell, five lots, to the government.
One suitable lot, 8102, and another with no lot number next door over the Eastside on the Undoolya Station Road would be ideal for BOTH galleries which should be kept together.
Once Lhere Artepe sorts out its problems we should be running it with the help of an art director and TRUE Aboriginal cultural men and women on the board.
All the Lhere Artepe shemozzel has been reported to the Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations of the Australian Government, in charge of all Aboriginal corporations.
It looks like it has washed its hands of what has been going on for the last four years.
Divide and rule.


Mparntwe custodians: Lhere Artepe does not speak for us
We Aboriginals respect our dead (sorry business). All I see with you people and the two ministers it’s all about money. Let’s build at the Desert Knowledge. The cultural centre and art gallery together.


Council says ‘no’ to government gallery offer
Lhere Artepe closed for the last six months not because of the virus.
The CEO was on holidays in Darwin.
There has not been a meeting by all estate groups for him to be granted leave.
Dale Wakefield, you are doing what the CLC have done all these years – listening to people who do not belong to our Arunta Country making trouble.
For instance Graham Smith and his family are Yawatta people from Utopia.
Their grandmother Tilly Tilmouth and her brother Roy Tilmouth (the father of Bruce Tilmouth) born and bred Yawatta.
Last year we had a meeting 60 of us men in the room at Anzac Hill with some of your people and Benedict Steven chaired the meeting.
The decision for the art gallery was 60 against, nil for.
So, we would like you and Graham Smith to organise a meeting, rather sooner than later, for Graham to explain who he is and where he originates from.
There seems to be one estate group, Maparntwe, with Robert’s family making all the decisions.


Gunner’s native title deal not what it seems to be
The parcel of lands portion numbers 8118, 8869 and 4051 are in the swamp area.
According to the NT Government rules the developer would have to build a metre high footing to build. A lot of carting of sand and gravel.


Gunner’s native title deal not what it seems to be
Marisa, where have you been all these years? I thought you the Stuarts related to Nancy Campbell.
If so you are family for Robert Campbell that’s why he is making all the Campbell family members.
This is not according to the rules.
Another bad point on your part, Mort Conway passed away thirty years ago or more.
Fabian Conway and his family are the true Culture Traditional Owners.
