*Special* @thomasamayor - Uluru Statement From the Heart. Out now! After being welcomed by the Squamish first nation with songs, history and storytelling, we listen to Thomas Mayor, Branch Secretary of the Northern Territory branch of the Maritime Union of Australia, and advocate for the sacred Uluru Statement From the Heart. Thomas tells us about the struggles of Aboriginal and Torres Straight people in Australia as well as the work that went into creating the Uluru Statement, and his 12 month campaign to gain Voice, Treaty, Truth.

#AIATSIS highlights #collection materials that document the manner in which the #drum endures as a #symbol of #TorresStraitIslander identity and acts as an agent of the musical change in the sacred song repertoire in the #TorresStraitIslands .
The Collections cover the period 1920s-1995 and of special significance is a photograph that records the exact moment on 1 July 1921 when the drums were introduced into the Anglican Church Mass. #AIATSISCollection

We support the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples: "The 2018 theme will focus on the current situation of indigenous territories, the root causes of migration, trans-border movement and displacement.." #IndigenousDay#IndigenousPeoplesDay
Today is the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People - August 9.
It is observed every year to protect, promote and advance the rights of the world’s indigenous or First Nations peoples, and to recognise the achievements of indigenous peoples and the remarkable contribution that indigenous peoples make to improving the world.
Cultural connection is an important part of the Girls Academy program. #Aboriginal and #TorresStraitIslander people are the proud guardians of the world's oldest living culture, and these girls are the community leaders of the future.
International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples was first pronounced by the General Assembly of the United Nations in December 1994, marking the day of the first meeting of the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations of the Subcommission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights, in 1982.
August 9 is celebrated around the world, and a major commemorative event is held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York by the #Indigenous Peoples and Development Branch – Secretariat of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, which brings together indigenous peoples’ organisations, UN agencies, Member States, civil society, academia, and the general public.

How great is this pic of @shemovedfromthecity! 🤩 Amazing! Thank you to everyone who has supported our NAIDOC range. So heartwarming to see all your photos that we’ve been tagged in! Keep them coming ❤️ .
Ps. Just wondering why there are no emojis for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags? I think this needs to happen. ❤️💛🖤|🇦🇺|💙💚
We would like to extend a warm and heartfelt 💓THANK YOU 🙌 to Gandel Philanthropy.
VACCA was recently awarded a Major Grant from Gandel which will go towards VACCAs Return to Country program.
The Return to Country program is an integral part of connecting young people in out of home care to their home and country. Enabling a connecting to Elders, visits to sacred sites, a sharing of knowledge, including learnings about songs, stories, art, tracks, places, landforms, plants, animals and natural resources.
This grant will ensure we can continue to strengthen Aboriginal community through cultural connectedness, creating culturally strong and empowered children, young people, families and communities.
When the Change4Kids Cultural Advisor @jack_buckskin hands out the hot tips🔥we take them and run🏃♀️
Jack set a goal to educate and empower Kaurna youth through culture🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
How did he do it, you ask?
He set a GOAL that he gave a rats patootie about and then he COMMITTED to it. .
Here’s how it works…
✅STEP 1 -
Set a goal that you actually CARE about
COMMIT to said goal. This means that even if you don't get it perfect, you still keep moving forward.
And here’s an example of how it DOESN'T work…
Set a goal that you don't really care about so that you can look like a Insta celeb and be happy and have no problems and all the money and a hot looking friends.
Believing that the above is actually a thing.
