I owe a lot to a group I formed back in 1994 in Brisbane. We went from knocking on doors for a break to performing at Australasia's biggest concerts and festivals. Live tv specials for Fox, StarTv, and features in Billboard and Rollingstone Magazines, 17 award nominations and multiple awards won. We were told it could never work, that no one wanted to see hip hop in Australia,... well,.....lets just say we proved the doubters wrong. #followme and my new journey into medicine ☺☺ #WeBuiltThis#LegendAward#hiphop#rap#music#musicaward#legends#icons#australia#aboriginal#nativeryme#musicoz
You wouldn't throw away the best part of your sandwhich would you (crust haha)? So why would you throw away the best part of your paw paw fruit?
These little gems in disguise are really good for you, just like the super food it comes from. Besides detox antigens, skin benefits and promotion of a healthy digestive system they assist in reducing your blood pressure.
The last photo shares some more benefits. You'll be amazed what you'll find within a little seed. ❤️🖐🏿
... oh my, this stunned me away and makes my day, this is incredibly beautiful ... love it ❤️ .

Hey, we have Free Express Post on orders $500+ worldwide🌍 until the 23rd🙏 This beautiful painting is by Melissa Nampijinpa Karpa and shares her water Dreaming🙂

The site depicted in this painting is Puyurru, west of Yuendumu. In the usually dry creek beds are ‘mulju’ (soakages), or naturally occurring wells. The 'kirda' (owners) for this site are Nangala/Nampijinpa women and Jangala/Jampijinpa men. Two Jangala men, rainmakers, sang the rain, unleashing a giant storm. The storm travelled across the country from the east to the west, initially travelling with a ‘pamapardu Jukurrpa’ (termite Dreaming) from Warntungurru to Warlura, a waterhole 8 miles east of Yuendumu. At Warlura, a gecko called Yumariyumari blew the storm on to Lapurrukurra and Wilpiri. Bolts of lightning shot out at Wirnpa (also called Mardinymardinypa) and at Kanaralji. At this point the Dreaming track also includes the ‘kurdukurdu mangkurdu Jukurrpa’ (children of the clouds Dreaming). The water Dreaming built hills at Ngamangama using baby clouds and also stuck long pointy clouds into the ground at Jukajuka, where they can still be seen today as rock formations.
The termite Dreaming eventually continued west to Nyirripi, a community approximately 160 km west of Yuendumu. The water Dreaming then travelled from the south over Mikanji, a watercourse with soakages northwest of Yuendumu. At Mikanji, the storm was picked up by a ‘kirrkarlanji’ (brown falcon) and taken farther north. At Puyurru, the falcon dug up a giant ‘warnayarra’ (rainbow serpent). The serpent carried water with it to create another large lake, Jillyiumpa, close to an outstation in this country. The ‘kirda’ (owners) of this story are Jangala men and Nangala women. After stopping at Puyurru, the water Dreaming travelled on through other locations including Yalyarilalku, Mikilyparnta, Katalpi, Lungkardajarra, Jirawarnpa, Kamira, Yurrunjuku, and Jikaya before moving on into Gurindji country to the north.
Police in Thunder Bay failed to properly investigate at least nine sudden death investigations of Indigenous people in the city, a long-awaited report has found.
In its report, released Wednesday, the Office of the Independent Police Review Director called the Thunder Bay Police Service’s investigations into a number of sudden deaths in the city “inadequate” and “so problematic that at least nine of these cases should be reinvestigated.”
Gerry McNeilly reviewed 37 Thunder Bay police investigations in his report, most of them missing persons and homicides, and mostly involving Indigenous victims.
The independent director found “significant deficiencies” in how TBPS records or maintains 11 investigation files.
McNeilly called the relationship between Indigenous people and Thunder Bay police “nothing short of a crisis.”
The 196-page report delivered 44 recommendations related to sudden death investigations, the Criminal Investigations Branch and the operations and relationships between TBPS

I’ve been lucky enough to spend the last 6 months working with @bangarradancetheatre and the experience has certainly left its mark on me. I’ve never felt more comfortable with myself and where I want to head in the future. Sometimes you see people making magic and then the curtain gets pulled back and you see how it’s being done and it becomes less so but with these guys it was the exact opposite. Being a part of the process only made what they do more magical to me and I’ll remember the David Page Music Fellowship as one of the most significant little chapters in my life. It meant so much to be able to help pay tribute to David Page with #Dubboo and to stand on stage and sing in language for the first time in my career. Proud to be involved. #Bangarra#dance#aboriginal#carriageworks photo: Daniel Boud
