The first instruction i had from senior Warumungu/Alyawarra lawmen in the NT (1980) was “A man does not get around among women”. I was watched for a year or so to see how i shaped up.
Central Australian indigenous men’s domain is never to be confused with the domain of women and uninitiated men (indigenous or otherwise)
Now, look at this keynote address at an “indigenous men’s conference” which holders of Basics Cards will not be able to afford, attend let alone be properly heard and respected:
The 2015 National Indigenous Men’s Network Conference Agenda
DAY ONE (28th September 2015)
8:00 AM REGISTRATION
9:00 AM Welcome to Country by Traditional Elder
9:30 AM Welcome Address & Formal Opening Keynote by Hon. Bess Price, Minister for Women’s and Men’s Policy, Community Services, Local Government, Parks & Wildlife, Northern Territory
10:30 AM MORNING TEA
Just who is empowered by the expensive conferences – which systematically exclude and disempower senior indigenous lawmen?
Rampant ethnocide more like it.
