GUEST SPEAKER: NEVILLE ATKINSON.

 

 Neville Atkinson Indigenous Facilitator with the Catchment Management Authority spoke to the club about Aboriginal framework in the Goulburn Valley.

Rumbalara Co-op established in 1959 as a site for housing Aboriginal people. Policy of the Government of the time to relocate Aboriginal people, not just Yorta Yorta people.

1968 Sir Douglas Nicholls (uncle) led social and economic inclusion, driving away from welfare and benevolence.

Rumbalara now provides community services, looking after the needs of Aboriginal people.

Yorta Yorta Nation driving quality of inclusion and respect to first nation people.

Need to start practising responsibility with expectation for people to manage own affairs and have better relationships with wider community.

Personally works with CMA as Indigenous Facilitator and in spare time pursues economic development with private and business sector for Aboriginal people.

A guy stands over his tee shot for what seems an eternity: looking up, looking down, measuring the distance, figuring the wind direction and speed. Finally his exasperated partner says, "What's taking so long? Hit the damn ball!"

The guy answers, "My wife is up there watching me from the clubhouse. I want to make this a perfect shot."

"Forget it, man," says his partner. "You'll never hit her from here."
