Australians can show their support for a Treaty with Indigenous people and end Genocide.
Candles will be lit for justice and peace advocating an Indigenous Treaty via a Bill of Rights on the first Friday of each month (except January/February which are combined into the 26 January walk). Walkers meet with candles after gathering just before sunset at Government House.
The walk aims to protect and defend Ngarrindjeri and other Indigenous culture, spiritual beliefs, lands and waters. To stop any nuclear waste dump on traditional lands, from affecting the community and Indigenous environment.
History of the candlelight walk
During January 2000 a number of Ngarrindjeri people came together under the auspices of the Ngarrindjeri Land and Progress Association Inc (NLPA), with its Chairperson and Manager, Tom Trevorrow, to meet with lawyer Patrick Byrt, a volunteer Convenor of Reconciliation and Human Rights at the then Norwood Community Legal Service Inc, to discuss how to get a Ngarrindjeri involvement in activities on 26 January 2000.
