POKEABOUT. Only silence is your true origin. Dawn lightning on the horizon. More and more challenging to keep up with the date. Extremely prejudicial is your image of the state. Lately the period of the new moon seems to suit you. She's called Sunshine and has a pair of skinny jeans for each day of the week. Quotes the recently visited chimney sweep: 90% of the heat is escaping. Fire bricks would help some. There's a supplier in Melbourne who sells them in bulk. Otherwise keep on keeping worlds separate from your lover too. Keep going where you say you will, your ancient master awaits. In the future, she says, Antartica will become more green. Also, currently indigenous Australians constitute 3% of the population. She says, Do not follow any group! Tomorrow the double sided print of her in the role as the Queen of Hearts will arrive by courier, which will hang nicely over the threshold to the playroom. #writing#queenofhearts#instawriting#aboriginalaustralia#news

My mum's great uncle John Mason, a Noongar maaman, served in the 3rd Light Horse Brigade in WWI. My grandfather on dad's side, Martin Lynch, fought in PNG in WWII. This beautiful bilingual translation of the ANZAC poem by UWA Professor Len Collard, in Noongar and English, honours them both ⛺🌄⛺ Thanks @uwastudents for sharing it ❤ And shoutout to fellow Ravensthorpe rellies @clairegcoleman and @declanscott7 🤙🏽
A beautiful morning watching the paddle boats on the Murray River, Australia's longest single river and the third longest navigable river in the world. It is more than 60 million years old and Indigenous Australians have lived in the Murray River valley for at least 40,000 years with about 10,000 aboriginal sites located in the Murray-Darling Basin. River Murray originally known as Millewa or Tongala depending on the language groups along its banks.
The area's traditional custodians are the Latji Latji, Paakantji (Barkindji), Ngiyampaa, Mutthi Mutthi, Wemba Wemba and Tati Tati and Barapa Barapa.
Today of all days let's not forget the 'narrative of our stunning continent, through white exploration, settlement, conflict, is complex, often ugly and disturbing story, of black-white war, of violent eviction from ancestral lands, theft of natural resources and of ongoing oppression, that manifests in stolen children, British nuclear tests at Maralinga (where Indigenous groups were carelessly exposed while attempts were made to protect most non-Indigenous people) and the shameful scourge of deaths in custody', that continue to this day...
“We pretend Australian identity was forged in conflicts overseas when in truth it was founded on conflicts right here" (John Carty)

Love Kakadu, or it should be called Gagudju technically speaking.... my little darlings got to drive the boat too, the tour guide is a lovely, witty and sarcastic Aboriginal man who answered "You can be the 1st lady who swim here ma'am, I'm sure you'll be the most famous lady instantly" when I asked if I could swim 😂😂😂 can you spot a ginga (girl croc) on the very 1st photo? Too much of a gorgeousness to share, so I'm not gonna say goodbye but Boh Boh (see you again) instead..... so in ❤ with Kakadu ❤
