“We are at a crossroads. We can choose to try to fix the colonial Indian Act system or we can choose a new path: stand up as Indigenous Peoples, be who we know we are, and build a proper Nation-to-Nation relationship with Canada. Choosing to try to fix the colonial Indian Act system is a dead-end street for our people. I stand for being who know we are as nations and building a proper Nation-to-Nation relationship with Canada. Together, shoulder-to-shoulder with Indigenous Peoples, I know we can do this."
As National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, I will focus on the following areas:
• Recognition and Affirmation of Our Inherent and
Treaty Rights.
• Closing the Gaps that have persisted between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people for generations.
• Building Economies for Self-Sufficient Nations.
"Let's Be Who We Know We Are"

"It's not about getting angry. It's about educating people and just explaining to people what's ok, what's not ok."

Indigenous filmmaker JJ Neepin recreates her great-grandfather's portrait and explores the responsibility of wearing a headdress. ---
The headdress is a powerful symbol with great meaning in First Nations communities. Headdress is the start of an ongoing conversation about tradition and cultural appropriation. ---

These photos capture the ancient rhythm that still beats strong in Palua New Guinea. Traditional dance is in everybody’s veins and is expressed freely, often and with profound symbolic meaning.

Also, this series is a tribute to the beauty, grace and strength of people still living a traditional life style in harmony with nature.

Culture Camp was a huge success last week! These school holidays in the Warddeken Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) students from the Nawarddeken Academy and other local community members embarked on a cultural walk over a few days with their elders to learn traditional ecological knowledge. The purpose of these camps is to ensure that the next generation don’t lose their cultural heritage and are one day, able to pass this knowledge onto their children. We can all learn a lot from this remarkable process. Photo by Dan McLaren

“I have worked for the Knowledge Centre, this will be my 3rd year. I just absolutely love it. I have my Elder's day on Tuesday which is totally their day, they are allowed to eat and drink, biscuits, cake and tea. I put a movie on, usually documentaries or stuff I get off You Tube, Malcom Douglas stuff, Bushtucker Man, any Indigenous sort of stuff, they just love it. Some of the old fellas will sit here until, like for hours. I close at 5pm and they are still sitting here and the movie hasn't finished, I'm not going to say, "Hey Uncle, can you move now cos I want to go home (Laughs)." They love it. They also have once a month 'Bingo', they play for prize's like power cards, meat trays, fruit trays and vege trays. We always get a full house. I also get them involved in photos because we get a lot of photos coming in from here and there, from different sources. With the iPad's it helps me with facial recognition, I get them to zoom in and have a look at the photos closely to identify the person.” TBC…. #postpositive #yarrieyarns

Potlatch 67-67 is pleased to introduce Rande Cook, another talented Indigenous artist taking part in Hiłt̕sist̕a’a̱m - The Copper Will Be Fixed

Chief Rande Cook (K'alapa / Makwala) was born in May 1977, in culture-rich Alert Bay, a small village on the northern tip of Vancouver Island. Surrounded by the beauty of land and art, Rande found the passion of creativity at an early age.
Rande pushes himself in all his mediums looking for perfection of each technique. He is continually expanding his capacities as a visual and performance artist with new creative ideas. Rande has worked with many great mentors such as John Livingston for his mastery in wood sculpting, Robert Davidson in metal work, Calvin Hunt for his amazing craftsmanship in wood and most recently Repousee and Chasing master Valentin Yotkov. In 2010, Rande travelled to Italy to study under Yotkov and most recently he travelled to New York to study in Yotkov's studio to increase his craft in Repousse and Chasing.
With the strong teachings from his grandparents Gus and Florence Matilpi, Rande learned the strong values of life and culture. In 2008 Rande inherited his grandfather's chieftainship and now carries the name Makwala, which means moon. Rande is very involved in his culture and has hosted a Potlatch and two feasts for his family and community. Rande is also known for his traditional dancing and singing in Potlatches.

what a beautiful lesson!!! An anthropologist proposed a game to the kids in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that who ever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that, as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said: ''UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?'' 'UBUNTU' in the Xhosa culture means: "I am because we are".

These photos capture the ancient rhythm that still beats strong in Palua New Guinea. Traditional dance is in everybody’s veins and is expressed freely, often and with profound symbolic meaning.

Also, this series is a tribute to the beauty, grace and strength of people still living a traditional life style in harmony with nature.

Huge congratulations to Bangarra Dance Theatre on its great success at last night's The Helpmann Awards. 
Bangarra took home seven of the nation’s peak honours for the performing arts, including Best Dance Production for Bennelong. 
Special congratulations go out to NAISDA graduates Beau Dean Riley Smith, who won for Best Male Dancer and Stephen Page, who took out Best Choreography.

It's always inspiring to see NAISDA alum go on to achieve such fantastic accomplishments! 👏👏👏 #Repost @bangarradancetheatre

We’re incredibly honoured to have been awarded not one but three further @helpmann_awards this evening for #Bennelong, including the prestigious titles of ‘Best New Australian Work’, ‘Best Dance Production’ and ‘Best Male Dancer’ (Beau Dean Riley Smith). Bangarra is in its thirtieth year next year, but our dance technique is forged from more than 65,000 years of culture. Our company carries the stories entrusted to us by our communities and we are so proud to honour Bennelong’s legacy and bring his extraordinary story to the main stage. 📸 @daniel.boud

Admittedly, I'm not sure which I'm more happy about the air flower or @kisses4liberation modeling under it 😄🌺 Those that have been connected via social media or know me know I LOVE flowers and plants in general. And this beautiful air flower that I added a shell and strung from my ceiling above my bed - requires no soil and is absolutely Awemazing.. And OF Course the beautiful Flower underneath of it brings everything full circle 💕🔥🔥 #Love #AirFlower #Plants #PlantLife #Vegand #VeganLifestyle #Positivity #Gratitude #Life #Intuition #DivineFeminine #DivineMasculine #IndigenousCulture #Flower #LA #Cali #SoCal #Paradise #Hollywood #Balance #YinYang #Partner #FoLife

A little one for the mob back home celebrating NAIDOC week! #IndigenousCulture #kangaroo
It was a hot one yesterday but went to the Pow Wow at Downsview Park!  I missed the sporting events but they had dancers, traditional sports demos and food to sample!  Great event...as a community that has higher risk for certain diseases, it nice to see ppl keeping active and living a healthy lifestyle. (Pow Wow pics to come)

We’re incredibly honoured to have been awarded not one but three further @helpmann_awards this evening for #Bennelong, including the prestigious titles of ‘Best New Australian Work’, ‘Best Dance Production’ and ‘Best Male Dancer’ (Beau Dean Riley Smith). Bangarra is in its thirtieth year next year, but our dance technique is forged from more than 65,000 years of culture. Our company carries the stories entrusted to us by our communities and we are so proud to honour Bennelong’s legacy and bring his extraordinary story to the main stage. 📸 @daniel.boud

Earlier in the month four Song Room program schools in Western Sydney gathered at The Mount Druitt Hub for their Deadly Arts Showcase.
.

Indigenous artists Danny Eastwood and Kevin May worked with the students at the schools teaching them to sketch key aboriginal symbols, paint boomerangs and begin to draw dreaming stories. They also got to experience the Nulungu Dreaming dancers who got all the kids involved with learning the Dolphin Dance! 🐬🐬

Off to gather kunngobarn (pandanus)- first, we make a hook stick, then we pull the fibre and then we chuck it on the roof rack to take it to the waterfall so we can sit in the shade and strip it 😊 #arnhemweavingjourney #pandanus #collectingpandanus #fibreharvest #harvesting #basketry #basketweaving #indigenousculture #indigenousaustralia #culturetrip #indigenouscultureimmersion #therealdeal #transformationaljourney

“Since I have worked in the library (Indigenous Knowledge Centre at Wujal Wujal) it's become a passionate thing for me to restore language as well, the Kuku Yalanji language. So you have to move with the times, so unfortunately you gotta do stuff with technology. I'm hoping to incorporate our language program into robotics, into apps, into everything else, just developing it all with the permission of the Elders. I still but heads with them (laughs). I had a talk one day and I said, "One day we could be talking to a robot in our language" and they (Elders) say, "No, thats not right, thats not allowed!" I said, "But think about it, when one of our Elders pass, that knowledge and that language is gone with them". I said, "Where's with this robot we can back it up here (save data) and back it up there so all that information is still here (around)". They say, "But our culture is so strong we don't need to do that." I said, "Yes very true but it is just in case and it's a fact that we (society) are moving forward." I'm sort of bull headed too because they say you can't do this and I’m like, "Yeah I can (more laughing)." I know how smart our kids are. When I have had the robotics stuff in here, from word go they are on their own and they do it, they know how to do it, they just blow it out of the water you know. It's unreal. So they would be having fun and learning language at the same time. Even when we have our homework classes I say, “You have to learn a few language words before you leave or before you are allowed to play on the iPad or go on the Internet.” So I'm constantly trying to make them learn language and culture. It's continually teaching our culture, where we come from, historical stuff and where we've come with settlers and everything like that. It's always a learning journey.” TBC....

Warddeken Rangers spend long days conducting prescribed burns in the early dry season to manage the timing, intensity and scale of wildfires, protecting the environment and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. After this grueling work, it's nice to be able to sit together and cook dinner over an open fire.
