Today is the Day! The vehicle is being packed and the fuel(vege oil) is full + 3x20litre drums on the roof. Excitement is building as the time to leave Biripi Country gets closer...should be around 7pm tonight that the Jackaroo points its nose north and begins the steady journey to darwin.
I pay my respects to the Biripi Ancestors/Elders past and Elders present and to the Biripi People as a nation. Thankyou for caring for me while i have walked bare foot in your Country.
As i cross this amazing Country i will be acknowledging the nations and People of many mobs. This is still their land, they are still the custodians and when we can learn to care for this land in a manner that is in harmony with it, only then can we share the right to custodianship.
Walkabout is On!
