I never noticed the trees before I met you. Every time I see you hug them and talk to them it makes my heart warm. You inspire me to be a better man just by being.

SHE’S 100!!!! 💯💯💯💯💯 What a legacy just this ONE woman has created. Over 100 GRAND, GREAT, and GREAT GREAT GRANDCHILDREN are alive including me because of her and what SHE HAS ENDURED. World War I, World War II, The Depression, The Cold War, Etc etc etc... She’s lived to see the world change right before her eyes from Hitler’s terrible regime to barely surviving the Depression. She’s a beautiful living soul of history and damn I’m so blessed and graced to call her my grandmother and have her blood running through my veins. I’m beyond BLESSED to have had such amazing women raise me, build me, and most of all... love me. All I can say is the Lord has blessed me so today. All I can focus on is the strength they have bestowed upon me. So love your mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, great great grandmothers, or any woman in your life that you have been blessed with because... you wouldn’t be here without us. No matter what we are put through.. we WILL OVERCOME and LOVE HARDER THAN WE DID BEFORE.

Love the theme of #naidoc2018 - “Because of her we can” - celebrating the contributions of Aboriginal women to their culture. And I adore this photo by @sashamortimorephotography capturing the beauty of three generations of Aboriginal women. I think many of us can speak the truth of ‘because of her, I can’. .

Because of Her, I Can.
... and because of us, they will.

As parents, role models & peers it is important that we remember the influence we cast upon the next generation. It is up to us to ensure that the gap is closed & we empower our kids to achieve great things.

The sun is really starting to shine on this chilly Friday morning, so why not warm up further with some CPR education at Musgrave Park’s NAIDOC celebration?
Our friendly crew will be hanging around South Brisbane’s massive NAIDOC event until 3pm, with plenty for the kids to see and do as the school holidays begin to wrap up #paramedic #qas #naidoc #becauseofher #wecan #musgravepark #brisbane

NAIDOC WEEK 8 - 15 JULY. As pillars of our society, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have played – and continue to play - active and significant roles at the community, local, state and national levels.

As leaders, trailblazers, politicians, activists and social change advocates, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women fought and continue to fight, for justice, equal rights, our rights to country, for law and justice, access to education, employment and to maintain and celebrate our culture, language, music and art.

They continue to influence as doctors, lawyers, teachers, electricians, chefs, nurses, architects, rangers, emergency and defence personnel, writers, volunteers, chief executive officers, actors, singer songwriters, journalists, entrepreneurs, media personalities, board members, accountants, academics, sporting icons and Olympians, the list goes on. They are mothers, elders, grandmothers, aunties, sisters and daughters.

#becauseofher I learnt how to be resilient, how to laugh in the face of adversity, and to be generous in every season. My Great Grandmother Dolly, along with her husband and four of their children, were forcibly removed to Fantome and Palm Island in 1936. In March 1937 my GG died on Fantome Island, she was only 41. I can't even imagine what that would've been like for my Nan and her siblings! I feel blessed that I had 38 years with my beautiful Nan, I'll be forever grateful for who she was. My Mum is the funniest person I know, and by far, the most generous. This year marks her 70th birthday, and I can only hope that I have her amount of energy, at that age! In honouring these two amazing Women, I am deeply aware that I stand on the shoulders of greatness #NAIDOC2018 #MalanbarraYidinji #shareyourstory #mother #grandmother

NAIDOC Because of her I can. ‘Yankunytjatjara; my grandmother's language. We weren't allowed to speak language at home or at school, we had to talk English in the 60s. I used to ask my grandmother to teach me her language. Our history is not a written history, it is passed on from generation to generation. Old people pass on their knowledge through storytelling. Now I pass on my knowledge for the younger generations’. Maureen Williams, Coober Pedy.

I know there are days where you struggle to listen and you don't have manners but I still love you no matter how many times you like to push my buttons. Lol I know that's how every kid could be towards their parents some days. .
.
I know I can't give you everything in the world but I know from past experience what to give you the most. Money can't buy happiness.
Happiness is a choice and people struggle to find it sometimes but may I remind you that you have in control of you. Be happy if you want to be.
Anyways!
What I can give you is my Time, appreciation, care, to teach you and guide you, to be a good role model, to give you my heart and love and show it to you every day. I know I said my time already but it's the most important thing because I want to be there every single day to watch you grow and to be your Mom.
I KNOW ONE DAY I can give you anything and everything you want.

The theme for NAIDOC Week 2018 is 'Because of her, we can!', celebrating the leadership of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women in the community.

There are so many of these women in the music industry. But partly because I can't find a good video on YouTube to put in my SOTD elsewhere on social media, here is the remarkable album, Koori Woman Blues, by the truly remarkable singer, painter, actor, dancer and political activist, Auntie Marlene Cummins.

Taking influence from Etta James and Mama Thornton, this is as pure a big band blues album as you will hear anywhere. But with astute observations, compelling stories and a sense of humour, it's a uniquely Australian, uniquely Koori take on the blues, in some ways an evolution of the uniquely local jazz-blues sound of Auntie Marlene's pioneering predecessor, Miss Georgia Lee.

As well as that amazing voice gliding over the top of a band that includes Murray Cook and Rex Goh, Auntie Marlene has writing credits on most of the songs and busts out her alto sax on the instrumental, Feels Like Rain.

Marlene Cummins is an important figure in the ATSI community, based in Redfern for many decades but with roots in far north Queensland. She joined the Aboriginal Tent Embassy when she was 16 and has put herself in the firing line advocating for legal, educational and legal services for Aboriginal people and for land rights; she monitored police treatment of Aboriginal youth in the 70s and petitioned Prince William for the repatriation of the remains of the warrior, Pemulwuy.

As an accomplished painter, she has been shortlisted for the NSW Parliament Art Prize, she has written music for theatre and appeared in television series and in The Matrix Reloaded.

Buy this rekkid and appreciate the life of this remarkable woman.
