Ngadyu narri Coedie
My name is Coedie
As a Wangan Jagalingou man, I invite you to come to my Country.
I am writing to you from Waddananggu, where we have occupied Wangan and Jagalingou homelands for over 6 months now opposite the Adani/Bravus Carmichael mine pit.
I am inviting you to join me on my homelands for the Annual Tour De Carmichael – Cycle for Country being held on Wangan and Jagalingou Country on 23rd until 27th May.
Tour De Carmichael is not a protest but a guided cultural tour on pushbikes. Come and learn about significant sites including Twin Hills, the Belyando and the sacred Doongmabulla springs and how they relate to Wangan and Jagalingou people.
We will be holding cultural workshops at different campsites at the end of each day and ending the tour at the Waddananggu ceremony – where the sacred fire has been burning for more than 200 days and nights.
Everyone is welcome to come. If you can’t ride, there are plenty of volunteer support roles.
Last year we had over 100 bike riders for the Tour de Carmichael 2021. Let’s see if we can make it even bigger this year!
I hope to see you all soon.
