Re: AMAA: With Saltwaterdreamtime

@Claire-RO @Janine-RO @mrmusic @Tay100  Just catching up now...

 

Thanks so much for your messages everyone. 
I just had a though for the CM’s/Mods, NAIDOC week is over but it doesn’t mean we abandon chats like this, how can we keep the conversation going? 

Re: AMAA: With Saltwaterdreamtime

Hey @Saltwaterdreamtime 

 

I just caught up on your thread. It was really touching to read. I hope you are proud of yourself as you sure as hell deserve to feel proud! You've gone through so much and you got through it all. I honestly think you have a great story to tell and I encourage you to continue to do mentoring like you mentioned in your post, as I believe many others can learn from you.

 

You raise a great question about keeping the conversation going. ReachOut will keep this here as a resource for anyone who would like to read it, and then we can potentially post relevant content here as it comes up. Otherwise, you are of course, welcome to create your own thread on this topic which you can update as you please. What are your thoughts on this?

Re: AMAA: With Saltwaterdreamtime

Thanks @Maddy-RO I would love to continue I just don’t know what’s out there. I have moved from Melbourne where I did it with an organisation.

It would awesome to keep this thread up but apart from that I’m just not sure what else to do at the moment, I think it’s just disappointing for me sometimes and this isn’t anything to do with what Reach Out has done but I find sometimes the conversation stops after NAIDOC and people resume their lives like it was just a trend. So I wonder what can be done the other 51 weeks of the year?

Re: AMAA: With Saltwaterdreamtime

 

Thank you for bringing this up Saltwater, this is such an important point, it would be really shit for this conversation to end just because NAIDOC week is over for this year. Our content team put together this piece about being an Ally to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people which has some ideas of how to move beyond being an ally just in NAIDOC week, and incorporating being an ally into our lives. One of the things from this I’m really keen to do is check out some of the podcasts and documentaries suggested, (I just started listening to Debutante: Race, Resistance and Girl Power, which is a podcast by Nakkiah Lui and Miranda Tapsell which is super interesting!) maybe we could have a new ongoing thread where we can chat about what we’re watching/listening to and what we’ve learned from these? 

That is just one idea, I’m really keen to hear and talk about other ideas!

Re: AMAA: With Saltwaterdreamtime

I like that idea @Hannah-RO and music too

Re: AMAA: With Saltwaterdreamtime

Yeah music too! And books! There is also a chat on Monday 23rd happening on forum about How to Be an Ally, (there isn't a thread for it yet, but here is the calendar) hopefully we can all generate some more ideas there too in the discussion Smiley Very Happy
