Mparntwe custodians: Lhere Artepe does not speak for us

They accuse the NT Government of showing them “utter disrespect”  with their latest move to advance the proposed national Aboriginal art gallery.  Their unanimous support for the gallery only if located south of the Gap was communicated to Minister Lauren Moss in June 2019 by a meeting of the custodians as a family group, with more than 30 attending. They say further that Lhere Artepe, which has lent its support to the government, has no jurisdiction over the Anzac Oval precinct, where native title has been extinguished.

 

UPDATE 25May 2010, 4.05pm: Minister Moss replies.

National Aboriginal Art Gallery: Anzac Oval off the table

p2522 Council Doris SM

Government plans for the National Aboriginal Art Gallery took a pounding last night. Despite the best efforts of Mayor Damien Ryan, the Town Council rejected entering into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Territory Government to progress the “Anzac Hill Precinct"  as the preferred site for the gallery. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

These days in consultations by AAPA, the 'right person' is the one who ticks the box, say the Stuart family, custodians for Tharrarltneme (Annie Meyer Hill) where the Chief Minister wants to build a boardwalk. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

Garden of delight

 

 

We live in a landscape full of drama – its grand forms, rich and
changing colours, its dazzling light deepening at dusk, softened at
dawn, its ancient stories imprinted in the sand and rocks, its
spaciousness and then its more intimate folds. No genius of stagecraft
could ever equal it – all credit to the team behind The First Garden for
recognising this and risking the challenges for the presentation of
their play.

The gods were with them on Saturday evening for the premiere of the
play, written by husband and wife team, Chris and Natasha Raja. It tells
a story about Olive Pink and the creation of the botanical garden that
bears her name and is staged right there, where she once lived, at first
in a tent, later in a rudimentary hut. KIERAN FINNANE reviews. PHOTO: Natasha Raja as Miss Pink. Courtesy Ben Convery.
