Coolgardie: An Aboriginal Sacred Site, Do Not Mine!

Always I feel I look at my own anglo european culture that has to find wealth in the ground, yet increasingly I am finding wealth in the nature. When one becomes grounded in nature, no longer do you see a pile of rocks, you see a spiritual wealth that is everywhere you look. I am… Continue reading

Port Augusta: Indigenous Issues

Had an interesting day today. Slept in and did my blog. The day went fast. I had a mechanic have a look over my car to make sure all is good, I have a big haul to Perth tomorrow. Will head to Ceduna.

I bought a present for the sisters here, some reflective happy face… Continue reading

Cooma: Indigenous History

My respect for indigenous people just grows as I marvel at their ability to survive and adapt. When I reflect on how they have come from a stone age consciousness to confront the european industralised society, it must have seemed so foreign. I believe they have adapted enormously to white society, a part of myself… Continue reading

Dreaming of An Ancient Earth In Rebirth

It is interesting when I am searching for information about the indigneous people and the diversity between tribes, I find it difficult to find out more about their culture. I am curious as to why? I am aware there is a men’s dreaming in the King’s Canyon, but I don’t know what that was about.… Continue reading

Watarrka National Park: Kings Canyon

I visited Kings Canyon today and was deeply impressed by the fact that it is 350 million years old. A large crack appeared through natural forces and the canyon was formed. Originally this place was covered by an inland sea and you can see the ripples etched into the rocks. Moreover, the sand crystalised and… Continue reading
