For those of you that have heard about the Walkatjurra Walkabout … and thought you didn’t want to walk, but would love to come out to country …
Then here is your opportunity!!
We are organising a bus trip leaving East Perth Train Station on Sunday January 27th 2013 at 9.00am and travelling to Yeelirrie & Lenora area for a cultural awareness tour led by Yeelirrie Traditional Owner, Kado Muir.
The Walkatjurra Busabout is a 6-day road trip open to all people keen to experience talking and living sovereignty, desert camping, communal cooking while travelling to some of the most beautiful and ecologically significant environments in WA. . It will be an amazing journey through Wangkatja country to share culture, to connect to country and to listen to stories. It will be a celebration and testament to the strength of community who has fought to stop uranium mining at Yeelirrie for over forty years.
There are a few options to become involved in this exciting project:
1.) jump on the bus to Yeelirrie leaving East Perth Train Station on Sunday January 27 2013, at 9.00am to travel to Kalgoorlie for the night to acknowledge and celebrate Sovereignty Day staying at Wongutha Birni Aboriginal Cultural Centre. The bus will head up to Leonora and meet Kado and other Aboriginal leaders to begin the tour of country. The bus will return to Perth on Friday 1st February 2013
2.) if you can’t make the trip, spread the word &/or send some-one you know that would like to come out country
3.) give a donation that would support Traditional Owners to come on the trip.
This is an incredible opportunity to be together with Traditional Owners, so together we as present custodians can protect land and culture for future generations.
The costs are: concession $350 – waged $500 – solidarity $650.
