Last couple couple of days on country foraging and exploring with our good friend Clinton have been immense. Such beautiful landscapes that people just don't even realise exist in the #epicpilbara. Everyone needs to get up here and get amongst it!

Day 4 of  we are demanding that the implementation of the  is bold and serious.
Indigenous, black and POC communities need to be front and centre of determining an implementation roadmap that will end the era of extreme energy like fossil fuels and nuclear power.
With extreme weather events increasing in magnitude and frequency we need system change not climate change.
Climate change is not only about the environment, or parts per million, it impacts our jobs, housing, poverty, migration, food security, gender equality and access to health care.

We are humbled and deeply honoured to be commissioned in collaboration with Kudjla and Gangalu artist Daniel Boyd to design a new pavilion at the Australian War Memorial to recognise and commemorate the military service and experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islanders who have fought to protect their country.
• 
The new work, titled For Our Country is set behind a ceremonial fire pit within an 11m diameter circular stonefield. From the front of the pavilion visitors will encounter a 10m wide 2-way mirror glass façade covered in thousands of mirrored circular lenses that reflect the viewer and the Memorial across its surface. Behind the glass veil is an intimate, contemplative space with a curved back wall and seating constructed of black pigmented rammed earth from which to see back through the thousands of transparent lenses to the fire and memorial grounds beyond.
•
With permission from the Ngunnawal Elders, an open invitation will go out to every Aboriginal and Torres Strait Nation for soil from their lands to be offered into the ceremonial cham­ber at the centre of the pavilion which penetrates deep onto the ground below the work. In this way each Nation is unified together in this place, where a piece of real country can act as sym­bolic remains of the fallen who have died in the protection of their country.
•
For Our Country will be a space to contemplate and commemorate Indigenous connection to country and the sacrifice that indigenous serving men and women have made and continue to make in the protection of this country. For Our Country will occupy a prominent position in the Memorial Sculpture Garden and is planned to be constructed in November/December 2018.

Welcome Sparrows herald the beginning of spring, arriving to wurunjeri country from their journeys north. Many bottlebrush flowers are  coloured infrared, glowing like honey for birds.
We can make cordial and cider from the sweet pollen of bottlebrush and wattle

Today we reflect on the role that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men play and have played in Australian wars. At times when they had no recognition as citizens of Australia, First Nations men served in wars for many reasons. Many hoped fighting would help their campaign for equality. However, after the war non-indigenous men who fought alongside First Nations men were given rights & recognition whilst First Nations men received nothing. Lest we forget.⠀

Such a beautiful spirit of community at the Anzac Day Indigenous Diggers commemoration.
Important to reflect that not all diggers were given equal recognition and respect.

It was fantastic to see so many more people this year paying their respects at this mornings dawn service at the Kangaroo Flat Soldiers Memorial❤️Remembering & Honouring the great sacrifices that my family the #mansell Mob made and many, many other courageous young aboriginal men. Fighting alongside white fellas- many of whom did not treat them as equals back home as well as on the battlefields. Some did not make it home. Those that did were not given the respect, recognition and acceptance that they so truly & deeply deserved🖤💛❤️ #indigenousanzacs #indigenousdiggers #anzacs #lestweforget #tasmanianindigenousanzacs #aboriginalandproud #atsianzacs #alwayswasalwayswillbe #rightwrongs

We did not choose writing, writing chose us.

This quote reminds me of when I was little, starting on my very first book. At that point in time I would have never dreamed of being a writer, yet I made up stories, characters, plots, and wrote them down into little books almost daily. It wasn’t until I completed my first fan fiction novel that I realised how much I enjoyed writing, how much I always had enjoyed writing. However, I didn’t decide to become a writer in that moment. I simply discovered that I always had been and always would be a writer, and I stopped denying it.

The city of Adelaide was built on Kaurna land. Many of the park lands surrounding the city have had the Kaurna names re-instated following the City of Adelaide Reconciliation Statement in 1997. ⠀
⠀
In the Pirltawardli (meaning possum home in the Kaurna language) park lands there is a memorial to the history of the site. This includes the original inhabitants, and the Christian mission established in 1839 for Aboriginal people in South Australia. ⠀
⠀
In 2008 the Adelaide Parklands were included on the National Heritage List, for their uniqueness as part of the design of the city by Colonel William Light. ⠀
⠀
They continue to be a special place for many Adelaidians, connecting us to our rich and diverse histories. ⠀

In Naree Station Reserve, at some point over the land’s post-colonisation history, the station owners had displaced Indigenous artefacts from across the 14,400 hectares. Recently Budjiti elders and traditional owners Phil Eulo and Aunty Ruby held a formal repatriation ceremony to return them to their traditional lands. “It was the greatest thing that ever happened,” recalls Eulo.

Day 4 of  we are demanding that the implementation of the  is bold and serious.
Indigenous, black and POC communities need to be front and centre of determining an implementation roadmap that will end the era of extreme energy like fossil fuels and nuclear power.
With extreme weather events increasing in magnitude and frequency we need system change not climate change.
Climate change is not only about the environment, or parts per million, it impacts our jobs, housing, poverty, migration, food security, gender equality and access to health care.

I wouldn't say that I'm overly well travelled but I've seen a bit. I've seen jack shit of Australia but I think it's safe to say that the Blue Mountains is one of my favourite places in the world. Not simply because of it's beauty but because of the overwhelming connection i feel towards everything (natural and not) it embodies when I'm in its space. #alwayswasalwayswillbe #darugnation #gundungurranation

In first grade my hearing was tested. My teacher, after noting my often dazed expression and far-away look, assumed my hearing was to blame. I was sent to the school nurse. When my hearing tests came back normal I was sent to the school psychologist. Other tests were taken and various other questions answered. At some point my mother was called in only, I guess, as protocol because when she asked what the issue was the psychologist professionally explained that after thorough testing it was determined what I had was “an active imagination.” .
True story.

"Heaven is everywhere / Where are you"
.
.

The truth and testimony to counteract all the rubbish slung about by Sunrise recently (even this morning!👎🏽🌄👎🏽) can be found in Ali Cobby Eckerman's poetry collection 'Love Dreaming & Other Poems'. Intergenerational trauma is referenced in 'Sink', which explores the fear of a partner walking out whenever they argue. At the end the baffled partner responds: "you stolen generation mob / you're really affected! / we was only arguing /whose turn to do the dishes!". Willful forgetting is referenced in 'Wildflowers' where "Mallets pound fence posts / in time with the sabres / to mask massacre sites". There are poems about masculinity in crisis, the Intervention, racism, anxiety at what has been lost and hope at what can be saved. The poems reveal the human beings behind the stereotypes, encouraging compassion even in tough poems like 'How Does A Father Feel' about toxic masculinity and child abuse, and 'I Tell You True' about alcoholism and trauma. There are so many great poems in this collection, it was hard to choose one to show here, but 'Ribbon' is a hopeful poem about how your connection to Country can never be severed. Ali Cobby Eckermann's fierce and compassionate voice reflects a true love for her Yankunytjatjara and Kokatha heritage and is very inspiring. Thankyou @___wolfess for gifting me with this beautiful book 💕📚💕 #alicobbyeckermann #vagabondpress

Chumash Elders. (Chumash Dolphin Dancers)

The Chumash are native people of the central and southern coastal regions of California, in portions of what is now San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura and Los Angeles counties, extending from Morro Bay in the north to Malibu in the south. They also occupied three of the Channel Islands: Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, and San Miguel. The smaller island of Anacapa was likely inhabited seasonally due to the lack of a consistent water source.
