[-o-] Brothers, sisters, grandmothers and grandfathers of the world unite to send prayers and support to keep the oldest living culture alive and thriving!

Hoping you are all shinning bright today as we are trying hard to here in Australia right now.  And I was dreading the day I might have to call on people like yourself to help.  The time is here and i have come to ask you firstly, have you been kept in the loop with Oz issues? So, it is with the heaviest heart i call on u to loan ur support to end the secret war on the oldest surviving people, their culture and their land.

I am a proud young mother of 5 boys who has been brought up in the struggle, feeling today like I’m fighting my way out of a plastic bag.  We lived in a tin shed n a dinged up van in picturesque North Stradbroke Island bushland, without water, toilet, shower, with a generator on at night 4 light.  We know this is important to carry on in the footprints of our ancestors, escape the assimilation push and raise our children with the space to grow.

My partner and I teach traditional dance every saturday to get our culture strong and connect back to our mother earth. The biggest problem is we still don’t know our language – 17 survive so far out of 250 languages, we don’t have a single bit of family support here now, most have passed on.  TV is making our children complacent, trauma from oppression is even destroying the best of us quietly and we are only living to an average age of 60 at most.

It is pressure i feel, being among the first generation of my line to be free, all my mothers before were forcibly removed, abused daily and made slaves until they could escape.  I survived Redfern, a heroin habbit, loosing my everything- my nanna’s my mumma, her brother, her sister, my culture teacher and alot of young ones taking their own lives.

Dreaming Statement:
We hope by connecting, sharing and assisting the efforts of communities, we will grow together, make wiser decisions for our future and return to the balance we once had in this land.

“Let us put our minds together and see what kind of life we can make for our children.” – Chief Sitting Bull

Master plan

Surely we hav enuff supporters across enuf fields to set a plan in action. I know it’s not the ideal 4 all mob but i believe alot can b achieved from livin on country where possible. Even tho hard, if we got access to our country we can pull together one deadly practical solution at a time. We set up bout 5 yrs ago, we want to get in touch with that 1 from abc doco that cured most ailments with participants in 6 weeks on bush tucker, get onto habitats 4 humanity or simply build earth ship type community, food co op, gardens, harvest water, power, with max cost per house being $20,000. Need 2 have langauge circle? to feed playgroup and school but all supported by branches of first peoples wellbeing associations maybe (even including a national rep assoc too 4 unity and co ordination across the land.

We had no choice, we were risking major attempts to assimilate kids. @ Mathew a few schools we have attended, i pulled kids out the experience was so bad. Afterall we found out where we were living in a place wher ol people talked like it was nothing about watching ther dad n pop shoot blacks off their property. Our school is welcome and ready 4 more leadership. I hated school but lasted just. The new language syllabus for qld looks like a few practical solutions for alot of the problems our generation had with school with cultural correctness, but how long b4 that happens. Even my children r becomming victims of this corporate slave training model. I wanna ask Jimmy Chi if we can use the term Bra Nue Dae as a movement starting on 26th Jan maybe. I would also like to develop with guidance a complete n comprehensive kit 4 learners to navigate the lies n hit em home with truth. Insuring our principles/perspectives to be major contents n other stuff that brings people up to date, especially our mob. I was thinking guiding, inspirational and educational, everything we want to pass on to our children. I hav it 70% complete, big, calling it a thrival kit, first aid 4 spirit. Ed dept might adapt this 4 program we want to roll out in schools first called ‘walk proud’. Very isolated here, surrounded by sea, ball ideas, opinion valued.

About the creater:
Future dreams for my people
i bn overwhelmed from young age by our entire situation and have devised ideas fitting like a jigsaw jus so u know that ideas are stringed and part of overall goal.  Whats hard for me is believing that any of these are going to happen and being in a position that works within my constraints when they do.  Im a big believer that solutioms are inplace especially here in oz, all we have to do is unite, network and coordinate efforts nationally to move forward faster.  So from what ive come across this is a glimpse of the dream:

Start in community with a model say for example The First Nations Association of North Stradbroke Island, Brisbane, Qld etc so we can better build on our capacity to manage on a community level.

Start mothers/young womens groups & fathers/mens groups to assist with community support, play group, language circles, dance group, hunting  & bush skills, storytelling, landcare, wellbeing projects and hopefully centres spring up everywhere (emphesis on traditional health & practices, improving access to better food choices, positive parenting, gentle/natural birthing practices,and cultural preservation, maintainance and revitilisation, sustainability and undoing the mistakes of the past.

Bran Nue Dae Movement – like the song, play by Jimmy Chai.  Is a fitting name 4 such a huge effort as it explains the destination in the title… Hav 2 get permision 4 title.  The same as the word revolution, instead of just surviving (in some cases miserably) we hope by promoting self nurturing and that of immediete family,we’ll provide a means to assist in fast tracking the progress of thriving in the 21st century.  We as humans need a complete turn around in the way we live and you only have to have an honest think to agree.

The People pledge: a pledge for the betterment of the future of humans.  Made up from principles of the highest standing taken from stand out material from over time.  Which can also be a follow on from the next project for children and the highest level is also mentined next.

Walk proud education support package,  my gran made sure we grew up hearing her tell us to walk tall my child and she had this amsing plan to create the honourable ancestors for the children of the future foundation (visionaries of the family are at work on this also, i keep all her work and i see this as the grandmither project, the last on the list yet the objective of the entire operation).  This maybe the  spearheader for all projects because of social climate, need, benefits, practicality and importance. Working first with school principles on a program providing means and ongoing access/support to information and experiences that promote the idea of walking proud in the place they/school calls home.  With current national changes to the curriculum i have been told after talking to relevent people this is exactly what is needed.  The proposed sylabus already suggests alot of the implementations that will be most sucessful in my view.

But things like getting to know the  tribe name where the school is, getting elders and community memebrs to be part od school community, learn local sacred sights and do part in protecting/upkeeping, learn about and grow native food & medicine, learn and have local language language available (have other languages for other students from other language groups too even), have litreture for libraries etc… They than teach there students year after year how to walk proud in the place they now call home, being the influence our future generation needs to close the many gaps and assist our first people to hold onto the worlds oldest living culture.  In this are interacive elements tying in performance, art n crafts, educational visits and ongoing assesment items or efforts for school and beyond.

With thrival kit to assist along the way… A DIY guide to thrive today no matter where you from.  All your important information (health, family tree, achievemnts, goals etc), memmories, people, photos, in the one place aswell as practical information and advice to help organise your memmories for loved ones.  For murri kids and those interested there are fields for language lists, tribes, totems, timelines, inspirational writting etc. Would be great to get this ready for new year and conversations are underway to get this happening, the program with kit included.

Thrival international is the name i thought would be good for a network and coordination group that could start by doing out of the square type ventures/efforts to alleviate poverty stretegically, ourselves (lead by murris as a and urgently.  We have alot of sewers in our communities and could all contribute to the oppening of a red black and yellow shop which has a two fold effect, generating incomes whilst uplifting peoples self esteem by proving a variety of clothing that uniquely impacts positively with the pride displayed compared to normal department store clothing.  The group i imagined would have philanthropic projects, information service, etc.  But mainly attempts  to tie together all existing projects in our communities by catorgory, to learn from each other and assist also in achieving community goals.  The Indigenous Volunteers have shown interst in taking  huge effort on to get it started as it will help them with keeping a record of the many projects they are involved in.
