In this International Year of Indigenous Languages, Akeyulerre Inc wants to work with council, first on a specific project achievable within six months, then set a timeline for a process beyond that. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

Booked in with top echelon federal government advisors, Akeyulerre Inc will present their plans for a centre where Arrernte families can host visitors, locals and tourists alike, who want to learn about Arrernte culture directly from Arrernte people themselves. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

What should the Alice Springs Town Council do about the clearly expressed wish by Arrernte people associated with Akeyulerre Inc, an Arrernte healing centre on Stuart Terrace, to remove the statue of explorer John McDouall Stuart just across the road? Should they begin by responding to an open letter, addressed to Stuart but forwarded to the Mayor and elected members in the hope of a "very respectful discussion"?  KIERAN FINNANE reports.

 

Chief Minister: 'Not enough investment in culture'

 

Aboriginal culture “is the heart and soul of the Northern Territory" and "I don’t think we put enough into investment in culture”, Chief Minister Adam Giles told the Arrernte traditional owners, their families, friends and well-wishers who gathered on Wednesday to launch a book and a short film about the work Akeyulerre Inc is doing. KIERAN FINNANE reports. Pictured: Arrernte elder Amelia Turner with children at the launch.
