On October 12th, 2011, a very special event took place at Walmadany, James Price Point, on the pristine coastline of the remote Kimberley region of Western Australia. Aboriginal Elders came from all over the Kimberley, and 300 Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people gathered to sing and dance at the site of a proposed LNG Hub, which would open the door to the massive-scale industrialisation of this pristine region. This celebration was held to show respect to the local custodians, the country and the old people, and to promote the environmental and cultural values of the Kimberley, the songs, the stories, the dances, and cultures that make this place unique in the world. You can help protect the Kimberley by clicking "attend" on our Facebook Site, "Walking in the Ancestors' Tracks". Paddy Roe, Nyikina Elder, Custodian, and Law Keeper said in 1992: "we have to hold this land, together. For all of us". This is our future.
