JACINTA PRICE ON TOUR MIND THE GAP – Bridging the Indigenous Divide
Jacinta Nampijinpa Price, renowned indigenous Alice Springs’ town councillor and now Director of Indigenous Program at CIS, frequently comes under media fire for expressing her opinions. Citing offence caused to her fellow indigenous citizens, media criticise her bold opposition to moving Australia day to another date, and for her criticism of certain of her fellow Aboriginal/s (community members) who, she states spend too much time and energy in a state of perpetual aggrievement and victimhood, instead of confronting the real and critical issues facing the community.
The daughter of former CLP politician Bess Price, Jacinta brings over 20 years’ experience in delivering cross-cultural education. A multi-talented woman, she won the 2011 NAIDOC Awards Artist of the Year, her singing and her songs reflecting her life and that of her fellow indigenous Australians.
Following the wake of the growing ‘Change the Date’ movement, Jacinta will also address other divisive issues that distract from bridging the indigenous divide. But most importantly, she will portray her vision of what a connected future would bring in lieu of her unique and impressive insights on the Uluru Statement, the ‘Change the Date’ movement, and other indigenous issues that trap Australia’s most marginalized.
Aboriginal people are being told by those removed from traditional culture that assimilation is a dirty word and that being part of the mainstream is bad, while these same people take advantage of the modern world. It is the right of any human being to be able to be part of mainstream society and what it has to offer. JNP.
