New government: Will you have what it takes?

 

 

Alice has relatively unspoiled natural beauty, is home to some real true-blue types, and is pretty much the only place I’ve been to in Australia where you’re totally surrounded by the truth of living in a post-colonial society, writes STEPHANIE HARRISON.

Culture centre: Where is Aboriginal leadership?

There will be no Indigenous cultural centre in Alice Springs unless the people whose culture it celebrates come to an agreement about it. So say Alice Springs News Online commentators and Deputy Mayor Steve Brown. Meanwhile the Art Gallery of South Australia (pictured) is making the most from Central Australian art. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

 

Leadership spill in Lhere Artepe

Lhere Artepe Aboriginal Corporation has a new chairman, Ian McAdam (pictured left), who is replacing Brian Stirling (pictured right), according to an executive member of the group.

Noel Kruger remains as one vice-chairman and Michael Liddle has been appointed as the second.
Eight of the 12 executive members have survived the shake-up, while four new ones have been appointed, including Ian Conway, one of the leading reformers of the town's native title group.
The changes follow years of turmoil within the group, and recently the sacking of CEO Darryl Pearce, to whom Mr Stirling was close.
The source says more decisions will be made on Monday.
The changes have been approved by the Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations, according to the source.
Mr McAdam works for the education department and is the assistant director, Alice Springs Football Academy - The Clontarf Foundation. He is also a participant in the Desert Knowledge leadership program (its website is the source of Mr McAdam's photo). ERWIN CHLANDA reports. SEE BELOW for more Lhere Artepe reports.

Behind the anti-intervention tirade: wanting a slice of the action?

They have no control over their lives anymore ... paternalistic and punitive measures ... broken lives and spirits ... endure life [in a camp] ... toxic nature of intervention measures.

No, this is not the desperate plea of an oppressed people in a brutal Third World dictatorship.
It's Tangentyere CEO Walter Shaw speaking on behalf of people benefiting from an unprecedented $150m Federal program – in addition to the massive ongoing welfare expenditure – to provide better housing and other services to his clients.

Meanwhile, are there members of the Shaw family living at Mt Nancy (pictured in this Google Earth photo) who are superannuated, employed, capable of taking on employment or in a situation in which Centrelink would expect them to be available for employment? And if so, why are they living in public housing? ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

Young people 'on the fence' on curfew

If
they were mayor for a day, they'd introduce an adult curfew – no, just
kidding. In fact this group of young locals didn't raise strong
objections to a youth curfew. Asked to think about the pros and cons,
they came up mostly with cons but certainly not howls of protest.

They were a dozen students from the town's high schools – Centralian
College, St Philip's, OLSH and Yirara – involved in the Youth Desert
Leadership Program.

In a workshop hosted by Desert Knowledge Australia and the Alice
Springs Town Council, the students also discussed how to make the centre
of town more attractive to young people. One proposal is that the
government buy the vacant Melanka block and turn it into a park where
young people could hang out at night. Pictured: Mayor
Damien Ryan talks to youth leaders at yesterday's workshop. From

teacher), Naomi Ingamells and Rachel Dash. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
