Gallery debate aside, Arrernte custom follows patrilinieal line in talking for country.
It has always been this way. It is still acknowledged by knowledgeable senior women and men.
Benedict Stevens is the male apmereke-artweye for Alice Springs. A big responsibility falls on his shoulders for many different issues that people would not see, especially in the current day contemporary Aborigine politics and constant badgering for consultation over town developments and issues.

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.


Jacinta Price: 4 year commitment lasted 18 months
When are people in our camp going to see this for what it is?
We’ve heard lots of talk, rants, seen the self promotion, social media posts and interviews but zero solutions.
She isn’t an on ground community person actually doing the hard yards in DV, families and children, community health, policy etc.
If elected it’ll be another disappointment.
