All hail the United Ngunnawal Elders Council

By johnboy - 6 August 2009 38

Comrade Stanhope has announced protocols on who gets to be a traditional owner of the ACT or not.

It’s bad news for the rogue Ngambri with all the spoils going to the “United Ngunnawal Elders Council” (UNEC).

Apparently the protocols also cap the fee for a “Welcome to Country” at $300 as well.

What’s Your opinion?

Pelican, neither of them can prove anything. Let them sort it out between them and stop causing all this aggravation.

Of course everyone wants to do the right thing by the original occupiers, but if they keep sqabbling like a pack of yobbos, why should we get caught up in it.

Both sides are milking some pretty spurious claims for all they are worth because there’s money in it for them.

No need for personal abuse – shows the moral and factual bankruptcy of your argument.

ha ha ha ha you make me luagh, if you are all knowing on the subject to publicly state that they can’t prove anything then provide the facts that you do know that they can’t or shut the hell up.

I will be more then happy to provide you the proof of the Ngunnawal people’s history and connection to this land.

they are NOT in it for the money, it’s for the reconigition, nothing more, and considering the majority of posts you put up is about real estate then I know where YOU are coming from, sleep tight pettle as your house or land will NOT be taken away from you, you real estate value will increase into a nice portfillio so that you can retire to QLD with VG and listern to talk back radio!!!!

They have and will always be here.

Stupid squabbling between two useless groups of blow-ins.

So what do you call the people who came in after the “blow ins” knucklehead?

People who have an actual connection to the land they bought, rather than those who pretend their distant ancestors ‘lived here’.

Pauline would love your work. And spare us the “I worked hard for what I got……”

I thought there were no fulltime permanent indigenous inhabitants, and several tribes converged on Canberra from time to time? I’m with Matilda (even though she’s sometimes a dill and a bore when she does her welcome to countries). And what happened to the Ngunawal, the ones without the second n, that used to feature on the “Ngun(n)awal) signposting?

Pelican Lini 3:18 pm 06 Aug 09

Is Matilda even a local?
A Camberra taxi driver assured me once that he knew her and the family well and they grew up someplace in NSW where he was also living.
Wished I could remember which part of NSW he identified.
I reckon I would have learned a lot of useful information from taxi drivers over the years if I’d ever been sober enough to take it in.

gonzodoc 2:29 pm 06 Aug 09

Does anyone know if it was just Matilda that was debating it or if there were others from the Ngambri that also made the claim?

So that’s how this stoush played out. It’s been going for a while.
