TIDDALICK THE FROG

Tiddalick The Frog is an Aboriginal Dream Time story which the elders of the Koori Tribe would tell the children to teach them a couple of important lessons.

The Story

Once , a long time ago in the Dream Time there was a greedy frog called Tiddalick.Tiddalick wanted to be the biggest frog in all the land.

One very hot day Tiddalick was very thirsty so he began to drink and drink and drink until the whole billabong was all dried up. When all the other animals came to the billabong to drink there was no water. They knew it was the greedy frog who drank all the water. They were very angry at him. If the animals wanted to get all the water out of Tiddalick and back into the billabong they would have to make Tiddalick laugh until all the water came out.

The echidna tried to make him laugh by rolling down the hill into the dried up billabong but Tiddalick didn’t laugh. Kookabura was perched high in the gum tree, he pretended to fall out but Tiddalick still didn’t laugh. Wombat started dancing but Tiddalick still didn’t laugh. None of the animals knew what to and they were still very thirsty. When the eel was dancing he tied himself into a big knot, Tiddalick could not stop laughing at the eel. He laughed so much that all the water came out and ran back into the billabong. From that day on Tiddalick was never that greedy and only drank what he needed.

Morals

*A little laughter in a bad situation can make a whole lot of difference

Western Australia 1904 Aboriginal Concentration Camp

Western Australia 1904
Aboriginal Concentration Camp

The photo of prisoners is from a book coming out in November this year. http://uwap.uwa.edu.au/products/every-mothers-son-is-guilty-policing-the-kimberley-frontier-of-western-australia-1882-1905

The photo, in front of Wyndham gaol, ironically, is designed to show that the treatment of Aboriginal prisoners in Western Australia was humane and orderly. It was issued following Dr Walter Roth’s ‘Royal Commission into the Treatment of the Natives.’ Roth said the criminal justice system operating in the Kimberley was a ‘brutal and outrageous state of affairs.’ Men were arrested by police on horseback, usually without warrants or evidence on various East Kimberley pastoral stations that had been established on the Aboriginal country mostly in the 1880s.

Most (including at times children as young as ten ) were charged with the ‘unlawful possession of beef’ for allegedly spearing the introduced cattle and received sentences of up to three years gaol often including a flogging. On police patrols over several weeks or months up to 40 people at a time were caught and then neck chained together and forced to walk up to 300 km to gaol where, despite there being no regulation allowing it, the neck chains stayed on. Following senior police directives Aboriginal women were never arrested but were bought in with the same group. Not to act as witnesses for the defence but as witnesses for the prosecution. Again without any legal authority they too were neck or ankle chained. Prior to 1905 prisoners from Wyndham had their neck chains fastened with ‘iron split links’ that were extremely difficult to remove. The links were not police issue but purchased privately from an ironmonger in Perth. They could only be opened with ‘a hammer and a chisel with the prisoners head on a blacksmiths anvil’, a process that would take up to ten minutes. Most prisoners did not know what they were arrested for, why they were in gaol, or why they were being punished. Roth directed (among a litany of other issues) the government of the day to stop using neck chains although they were used in Western Australia until at least 1956.

FIRST NATIONS PEOPLE🙁

When you seeing Aboriginal events and gatherings in many years now where the Aboriginal & TSI flag not getting flown and right cultural prodecures aren’t being followed properly by our own mob with no culture, cultural identity and pre/post colonial history knowledges… running the show…I can see where Herb Bropho is coming from. It is paramount we keep the movement glory days of 1970s to 1990s alive … and not watered down by our own mob who many not doing the proper job or migaloo mob calling the shots for our people… Struggles internally in 21st century… cultures evolve but history and old stories should always be maintained and nurturedBrother. Read this all the way through.. The fact is that most do not want anything to do with culture and who they really are because that is what they are programmed to do. Others know it, but they choose to stay in that world. It is like the matrix you will never see or know it exists until you are pulled out. Anyone who challenges the program is going against not only the people, but the core belief of the program. The program that has placed itself tightly in belief makes these people be instantly dismissed, labelled as terrorists or crazy. But it is actually called having an open mind. Something the majority lack.

“Only those who have lived their whole life in a madhouse that was created for them would think that anyone who speaks outside of it and calls it a madhouse has actually gone mad”?

Most who speak on this are actually walking contradictions. Whether they know it or not. I was also the same, as i said it is all part of the program. And i hear it all the time. This robot talk of “aboriginal people are not one color’,’you can not help who you fall in love with’ etc. That is programmed rubbish. Our people were black, and just because the program has made us different colors, we now only must do what the program tells us? Rubbish, that is a justification of the programmed life people live today. This is about empowerment. We are the only group who do not practice marriage with our own people. When you speak of it, you are racist etc. Yet white people, Indians, Asians etc do it everyday right in front of our fckin faces! How ridiculous. “Walking contradictions”

As i said they are simply justifications to satisfy a choice. This is about empowerment. Not by force but by teaching priority of your own culture like all these others do,The claim of this being the real world is ridiculous and ignorant to come from an aboriginal mind. This life has only become known as reality to us for only 200 years? Check my recent post. Sample-
” Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be”

You only have to sit a child in front of the T.V and they will learn what i am talking about in 6 months. Who do see? Hot white women, men, white models. T.V shows superhero’s, etc etc. Oh.. Wow black panther and a couple others came out now. it only took them decades in comparison to only 6 months influence on the minds of our children? We are programmed to accept and achieve the same as what we see and are taught.. I know i was one myself. I use to be mainly in love with white women, and to whom i was most attracted. Now i am attracted to my own people. And the blacker, the better it is about reprogramming the mind.

If people even used a bit of common sense they would see that the black biology is culture and a part of it’s power. Only someone else who wants you to forget who you really are would program you to think otherwise. Yes we are all human and all people should be treated with respect, but this is about empowerment. Something the white man has done to his own people for centuries, distorting and appropriating himself as the power and person to be like. We all wan to be like him, that is the problem. As i have said to you before. The basis of aboriginal and Islander freedom is culture and spirituality. If people can not define culture and spirituality that is separate from anything attached by the European, then they don’t really have a basis to fight for our freedom?

If you look at biology the more white you get the more disadvantaged you are. This is not about a race being better then another. This is the European’s science. These are simply facts that the programmer loves to hide and distort by calling me a racist. The biology of the black man is demonstrated in their science. They have been distorting this in for centuries? They will write and explain how this and that contributes to disease today but the fact remains. And the black biology has been on this planet for longer then him or any neanderthal? A perfect example is this- As i showed you, they now say in their science

Europeans have only been around for 8000 years. If you know our oral history, it tells us there was no such things as disease until we met the European. But that is not the program. So he needs to go and insert himself in a position of history that will show that the disease came from us? How convenient for AIDS to be attached to African people and it’s cousin attached to aboriginal people? Oh by the way this disease is apparently 9000 years old. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-04-24/ancient-virus-cousin-of-hiv-affecting-indigenous-australians/9688718
How convenient he fits into the picture? Anyone who knows history knows that disease was first noticed in the Dark Ages in Europe. And even biology can suggest otherwise? https://www.sciencealert.com/genome-analysis-new-species-pandoravirus-intergenic-generation
