It was an extra special day today, speaking about the call for a Constitutionally Enshrined First Nations Voice on Yorta Yorta land in front of this champion, Uncle Boydie, the grandson of the great William Cooper.

Ricky leon walker Best picture i have ever taken ❤ #yortayorta 
The last 2 days I’ve spent hours going through family trees, photos, books, birth, deaths and marriage certificates....it’s been an incredible journey so far, but also heartbreaking. 
Reading books about the land my ancestors had taken from them and the things they had to go through. I always knew about this, but to see family members names in these books is surreal and also makes me feel deeply saddened  from what they had to go through. 
This is only the beginning of my journey reconnecting with Yorta Yorta and I am so proud to be a part of it. 
This is a photo of my great great grandfather, Bagot Morgan.

‘They said, "Hey, Briggs, pick a date" (okay). “You know, one we can celebrate" (for sure). “Where we can come together (yeah). Talk about the weather, call that Australia Day" I said, "How about March 8th?" (that's a good one). And we can do it on your Nan's grave. We can piss up, piss on her face. Get lit up and burn out like Mark Skaife. They screaming, "love it or leave it" (love it!). I got more reason to be here, if you could believe it. Won't salute a constitution or who's underneath it. Turn that flag to a noose, put a cease to your breathing. I can't get in my whip, I get a ticket for that. I get a DWB, and that's a 'Driving Whilst Black'. I turn the other cheek, I get a knife in my back. And I tell 'em it hurts, they say I overreact.’ Come meet Briggs this Friday 27th July at the Literary Festival of Phillip Island.

Ngunnawal Country has arrived on Yorta Yorta Country - a small handful of ochre from @deean.cross for his installation as part of the Indigenous Ceramic Award (ICA) @sam_shepparton. 
Conceived as an alternative monument, each handful of clay acts as a gesture of equivalence to colonial occupation. A symbol of survival and endurance.

Ceremony preparations, traditional practice & knowledge passed down for generations. This years NAIDOC theme “Because of her We can” we honour our women. A driving force, back bone of families and communities, givers of life and nurturers. Thank you to all that come before me and those who will come after. It’s because of every one of you I CAN ❤️ ~BossLady xo

"NAIDOC 2018: Because of Her, We can...⠀
.⠀
.⠀
I put this video together some time ago, featuring a stunning dress handmade by @melyndamade from fabric bearing traditional Aboriginal artwork, Yalke Green, by the incredible June Smith. .⠀
Also included are these absolutely incredible clapsticks from @playful_by_nature, handmade by the amazing Yorta Yorta artist Ross Morgan at @deadly_creations_art @rossarthurmorgan .⠀
.⠀
This film contains the song Inanay by Tiddas. Growing up, this song left an enormous mark on my life... even as a non-indigenous Australian and as such has been included. .⠀
.⠀
The video was put together with the assistance and advice of one of my very nearest and dearest Aboriginal friends, as I wanted to ensure that it was culturally considerate.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
I didn’t post this video at the time in which I made it because there was a lot of discussion about cultural appropriation. Being completely honest, I was concerned about the possibility of negative feedback.... BUT...⠀
For me, the wearing, using and promotion of traditional Aboriginal culture is about the celebration of what is an incredible part of Australian culture... for me, this is about my appreciation and is not about being culturally appropriate or offensive. NAIDOC is a week to celebrate Australia’s Indigenous culture. In the industry I work in, and more specifically in the location I work in and demographic I work with, I work very closely with the Indigenous community and it therefore is extremely important for me, as a non-Indigenous Australian, to recognise and celebrate the culture and the community and show my appreciation. As Australians in general, we are all impacted by the Indigenous culture in one form or another... and I pay the utmost respect to all Indigenous peoples and elders - past, present and future. .⠀
.⠀
Zeta has been learning and celebrating NAIDOC at kindy this week as well as at home... it’s important to me that she grows to learn and appreciate the land on which she lives. .⠀

I couldn’t let NAIDOC Week pass without properly acknowledging this year’s theme of ‘Because of her, we can’. I always acknowledge that I was raised in a family that was female dominated and I really appreciate the opportunity to say thanks to the Wiradjuri and Yorta Yorta women who’s strength, resilience, wisdom, humour form so much of my heritage and my being. I pay thanks to my Mum Michelle for being my rock, My Nan Lillian Cooper (née Collins) for her courage and helping my Mum raise me, my Aunt’s Caroline and Connie for their constant support and being like the sisters I never got to have, my Great Grandmothers Evelyn Collins (née Freeman) and Nellie Pitts ( née Cooper) whose very being have gifted me with a family that I’m forever grateful for. To all my female cousins, I love and adore you all and am forever grateful to call you family. To all my Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander female friends, may you all continue to be the amazing beings that have helped shape who I’am today - a source of inspiration, support, integrity and humility that should always be recognised this NAIDOC Week and beyond #respect #naidocweek #naidocweek2018 #becauseofherwecan #appreciationpost #wiradjuri #yortayorta #tooblacktoostrong #aboriginalaustralia

I got so excited for Wilum as he didn't know that his Budda Willae was coming to the NAIDOC Collingwoods Farm in Melbourne. So excited to see them run a muck with each other today, Wilum was even asking for Willae when he got home. Love seeing how much fun these boys have with each other, thanks @aprilbarry__ palya ♥

After taking a basket weaving workshop with Yorta Yorta artist @donnablackall yesterday, I have a reinvigorated respect for the craft! 
Thank you Donna for sharing your culture, amazing skill & your boundless patience with us...I was determined to finish this tiny basket last night! 🌿 “As a proud Aboriginal woman, I believe the more we learn about our Indigenous ancestors in Australia, the more we can help people understand the country that we live on and the importance of maintaining a sustainable way of life for all Australians, and future generations to come” ~ Donna Blackall.

"Because of her we can" -NAIDOC 2018

This is my Great Great Great Nanna (Njerring) Sarah. I am so proud to have such a strong connection with my family, both sides, indigenous and non-indigenous, black & white. 
Discovering our connection with this country, our existence and history is both empowering and heartbreaking. 
Using my knowledge to help make a better future for all Australians.

Today we were privileged to have Yorta Yorta Elder Aunty Pam Pedersen join us for #NAIDOC2018  to share her mother's story as a community activist, organiser, advocate for Aboriginal women and mum.

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This year's theme - Because of Her, We Can! - recognises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women for their achievements, their voice, their unwavering passion that provides strength, empowered past generations and paves the way for generations to come.

We belong to the earth it does not belong to us. We are here to take care of it and pass it on to our descendants.

This morning we asked Uncle Col Walker to 'smoke' the new healing space at @wellsoulstudio before it opens. 
It was very important to Owner @nellymcneil to ensure this space was spiritually aligned with the traditional caretakers of the land here in Yorta Yorta country. A truly respectful and beautiful way to go about business. 
Uncle Col says the tradition of 'smoking' places and people was a sign of healing in itself. Many traditional cultures believe this. 
Thanks Uncle Col for coming out this morning and to Nelly for thinking to include such a tradition in her journey.

Briggs has become a powerhouse rapper who has created records that have made him a pioneer of the new wave of Australian hip-hop. He is Founder/CEO of Bad Apples Music. His outspoken critiques of Australian culture have given a strong voice to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders nationally. Friday 27th July.

I couldn’t let today pass without sending a big happy birthday to my mother bear!! It’s fitting that this year’s NAIDOC theme honours our amazing Indigenous women and i have been grateful to be raised by one of the best. A single Mum who had to play both roles with support from my equally amazing Nan. As I grow older I can see just how similar we are (especially our humour) and even though we drive each other crazy, argue and disagree, I couldn’t be more grateful to have her support, strength, guidance and humour in my life #mum #becauseofherwecan #appreciationpost
