My name is Noeleen Cox @Coxy26094374 and I am sharing about the recent and ongoing experience of my pregnant granddaughter who was recently diagnosed with covid19 in regional country SA. I am disgusted and angry 😡with SAHealth and the SAGovt and how they have treated Aboriginal
country covid patients who have been flown to Adelaide to be quarantined in a covid Medic hotel.
My grand daughter is 3 months pregnant with her first time pregnancy. She was held overnight in a health facility in Ceduna and then flown in the morning from Ceduna with 8 other

1/9 #Colonial #Victorian tropes of #primitive and #civilised are never funny @BBCNews @BBCWorld. They were actively used to justify colonialism.

Small-scale societies are as complex as large states, and values and morals are #HumanUniversals. Also, #Neanderthals were smart! Image
2/9 #Hunter-gatherers live in small groups but have large social networks. San societies in southern #Africa maintain these by exchanging ostrich eggshell beads across hundreds of kilometers. And they have been doing this for over 30,000 years.…
3/9 #Aboriginal societies in #Australia have complex ways of transmitting knowledge across space and time. Their #OralHistories preserved information on the impact of #SeaLevelRise at the end of the last #IceAge over 10,000 years.…

In the most grotesque breach of human rights imaginable, the #Australian army has forcibly removed #indigenous from Binjari & Robinson River communities to a #quarantine camp.

233 yrs of occupation/colonialism/genocide
Message to Michael Gunner, Chief Minister of the Northern Territory, @fanniebay

"Michael Gunner you coward - where are you? Come here mate. Come here. You lying deceiving dog. You moneyslut."

"This is our land. We know every inch of it."
"Most people infected with the virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness & recover without requiring special treatment."

This is not - & has never been, about a virus.
The architects of this mass hysteria do not care about your health.… ImageImageImageImage

Don't know who will see this, but as I've got plenty of time on my hands I thought I might as well counterbalance all the misinformation out there

I'm indigenous, currently covid positive and am currently staying at the Howard springs quarantine facility.

The camp is not used to drag away black mob. In fact this camp has been used for months and has had hundreds of non indigenous people come through it in the exact same process for months. Indigenous people had been lucky so far but our luck ran out.
The camp facilities are pretty good. The food is amazing (but I've lost taste now). WiFi is free. Everyone has access to their phones and can are in constant contact with family on the outside. I'm sure my family is sick of me calling all the time.

🚀🟥⏯️Watch the #REPLAY of the captivating interview of the archaeologist of #space Alice Gorman @drspacejunk by @TiphineLucas, that addresses #spacejunk, #colonialism and #aboriginal & #indigenouspeople issues⬇️1/🧵
#ecoleanthropocene2021 @EcoleUrbaine
2/🌏#Earth is surrounded by a constellation of tens of thousands of #satellites in orbit, but also of billions of #spacejunk of more or less large size, fragments coming from rockets or satellites, travelling at a very high speed: important risks of #collision.
3/💥#Kessler syndrome: we are rapidly moving towards a tipping point where the volume of space debris in low orbit is such that collisions are frequent, generate other debris and exponentially increase the probability of collisions.

Morning’ 🔆 Loved waking to the yarn generated on Traditional #Aboriginal #placenames. There is always dissonance when it comes imperialst #datacollection with a limited appreciation of Aboriginal cultural nuance and sophistication. Read more below.…
My Traditional language, the Mbarabram language is completey exctinct due to colonisation. So I believe its vital we support language revivals. Language is instrinsct to the expression of culture. A means of communicating share values, beliefs and customs.
Plus, there’s many borrowed English words from Aboriginal tribes, clans and nations, without any formal recognition. ‘Hard Yakka’ meaning ‘work’ from the Yagara language, the famous surfing brand ‘Billabong’ borrowed from the Wiradjuri group in South-West New South Wales.

Before I finish on @IndigenousX tonight - I wanted to share something to all the non-Indigenous researchers out there, the academics, the ones who have researched on #Aboriginal & #TorresStraitIslander communities & those who think they wanna be joining in the future
Lived experiences are paramount when you are conducting research. This doesn’t mean you create a project that has been done before or interview Aboriginal people because it’s easier than exploring what has already been done in that space.
#Indigenous people have been researched & researched - sometimes to continue the social constructs & stereotyping. Sometimes the researcher may have ‘good intentions’! There is so much data, research & information - make sure you have the correct info & you use it with respect!

“...many view the “emerging leader” coda as an unwelcome addition. How to circumvent the sage advice of elders and battle-weary leaders? “Emerging leaders.” Who gets to define what an “emerging leader” is? Not the collective.” By Megan Davis @mdavisqlder…
I have a real issue with the ‘emerging leaders’ label. As Megan Davis @mdavisqlder points out, the collective doesn’t decide who is an emerging leader. And it disregards the fact that our Elders are still our leaders. When my mob names me as a leader, then I will accept the title
Until then, don’t try to enforce your colonial view of leadership on the minds of Indigenous peoples. We have our own systems of leadership #AcademicTwitter #BlackfullaTwitter #Aboriginal

Today a group of health professionals wrote an open letter to @KenWyattMP calling for urgent measures to help prevent the catastrophic impact of #COVID19 on #Aboriginal and #TorresStraitIslander communities. We have advocated for a number of measures. 1/x
1. Clear protocols to cease non-essential FIFO contact with isolated local workers and community + adequate hygiene measures at every point.

2. The urgent release of many #Aboriginal and #TorresStraitIslander minor offenders from custody.

#COVID19 2/x
3. Government provision of guaranteed supplies of staples to #Aboriginal and #TorresStraitIslander communities.

4. Provision of clear, accurate, up-to-date information, preferably in language regarding #COVID19. 3/x

The Language-on-the-Move #InternationalWomensDay2020 post asks why there are so few female full professors in #highered

Check out our previous #IWD posts, too 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
Why are there so few notable academic women?
Hint: women high achievers are much more likely to be ignored
And why do female academics publish less than their male peers?
Hint: they are held to higher standards

Got 15 min before I jump off so taking advantage of pedestal;
Went for job at #Aboriginal org, asked why I wasn't interviewed for same position advertised 6 months ago. Non-Indigenous manager says 'not qualified' so growing up in said community for over 30 yrs doesn't count...
I know being skilled is important & I've heard this said at 2 largest #Aboriginal orgs/bodies in NT but where's focus on advancement of #Aboriginal people outside of academic frame? Why does everyone have to go through white-way to jump through white hoops to work for Blak orgs?
It starts to feel like gentrification of our spaces/places where we meant to feel safe to access services when we don't get to participate if we won't play the game the white ways?
Do we even get credits/RPL for cultural knowledge?
