    Indigenous youth get circus funding boost

    An Indigenous youth circus has received over $30,000 of Arts Queensland funding in the latest round.

    The funding will be divided among four Indigenous communities in the far north and will fund circus training.

    Coordinator Mickie Sellton says the Blackrobats circus provides a valuable outlet for Indigenous children.

    « Any kid that’s having troubles and the adults are having problems with them not wanting to get involved and not being interested and going down wrong paths, they end up being the stars usually, » Mr Sellton said.

    Mr Sellton says four communities will benefit.

    « The Arts Queensland funding is going to Wujal Wujal and Yarrabah and maybe even Hope Vale for three or four communities where there’s a few hundred kids in each community and some of them have never left their communities and haven’t even seen amazing circus and dance, » he said.


    bonjour Caroline! Enchanté!! 😀
    Connait tu cette fameuse ville d’artistes aborigènes et habitants en très grande majorité aborigènes?
    Pirlangimpi sur MELVILLE ISLAND?? c’est merveilleux et très impressionnant! 🙂

    C’est une île peu connu des touristes occidentaux et européens en general…..malheureusement!
    je conseil à quiconque s’intéressant à cette culture hors du commun, mystique et vrai de s’y aventurer, cela en vaut vraiment la peine!
    Au Large de Darwin, vous avez également le PARK Kakadu, une des merveilles de l’Australie de part sa richesse en Faune(oiseaux en particulier), voilà un vrai aspect de L’australie je trouve, ces deux sites ne sont à manquer sous aucun prétexte lors d’un voyage sur le Continent……. 🙂


    Bonjour et enchanté… Internaute inconnu!
    Non, je ne connais pas!!! Un grand grand merci pour le tuyau! C’est vrai qu’on reste très continentaux… Et alors… raconte!!!

    Oui, merci d’attirer l’attention sur ces endroits plus discrets de l’Australie. Vous n’auriez pas fait des photos ?

    Hello tout le monde 🙂

    J’ai trouvé des photos : http://www.ozoutback.com.au/postcards/postcards_forms/tiwi_melville_is/

    et deux sites

    Melville Island and the Tiwi People
    The legend of Creation of the Tiwi Islands tells us all was darkness and the earth was flat, until in Palaneri time (dreaming) Mudungkala, an old blind women arose miraculously out of the ground carrying in her arms three infants. Mudungkala slowly travelled north. The fresh water that bubbled in her tracks became the Dundas Strait. She travelled on to form the Tiwi Islands and their waterways. Mudungkala then decreed that the bare islands be covered with vegetation and inhabited with anaimals so that her three children left behind would have food, moving south, she then vanished.

    The Dundas Strain separates Melville and Bathurst Island from Mainland Australia. Our community of Pirlangimpi is approximately 100km from Darwin, capital of the Northern Territory. The treacherous tideways of the Apsley Strait divides Bathurst and Melville Island, Melville being Australia’s second largest Island after Tasmania.

    The Country is mainly open Eucalypt forest with pockets of Monsoonal Vine forst. The beaches are long, white and beautiful indispersed with Mangrove swamps which provide the rich feeding grounds for marine life including corcodiles. Melville Island h as fresh water in abundance with streams and waterholes throughout the Island. The seasons are wet and dry. On hot wet and humid. The other is dry, cool and ideal in winter.

    The Tiwi language, culture and ceremonial life is unique to these Islands. The old people have handed down stories of contact with outsiders, especially from Malaysia and Indonesia. Records of dutch explorers go back as early as 1644, well before Captain Cook. The permanent entry of outsiders into the Tiwi Islands dates back to 1895 apart from the British Minilitary sellement at Fort Dundas from 1824 to 1829. With the establishment of the Missionaries at Bathurst Island, Tiwi people were moved to Nguiu. From the 1940’s Pirlangimpi was an orphanage form Aboriginal children of mixed descent. Tiwi officially regained their land in 1976 with the Tiwi Land Rights Act.

    Much of Tiwi ceremonial life and law have dissipated with missionary influence over the past hundred years. Although major Ceremonies, Pukamani and Kulama continue to be celebrated and their importance respected.


    Bravo, Nejma, et merci:-)
