Parrtjima to light up Alice Springs with artworks by Ampilatwatja artists Koori Mail

A NEW installation and expanded program of events has been announced for Parrtjima A Festival in Light, the celebration of central Australian art and culture illuminating Alice Springs from Friday, September 22, to Sunday, October 1. The festival hub Apurte-irretyeke (Getting Together) will come to life with live talks, events and music. In addition to the installations and illumination of the MacDonnell Ranges, Medicine Space (Awelya-akerte Apmere [Medicine Country]) is a new installation featuring artwork by Artists of Ampilatwatja that will transform Alice Springs Desert Park into a mesmerising outdoor gallery of light and sound. Medicine Space projects a series of artworks by Ampilatwatja artists Michelle Pula Holmes, Julieanne Ngwarraye Morton and Kathleen Nanima Rambler onto hanging semi-transparent fabric, suspended in the desert and moving freely in the breeze, as images appear and disappear.

ALERT! - CNHA TO POCKET $225,000 IN $1.5 MILLION HAWAIIAN CHARTER SCHOOL SCHEME

 

 



























Please forward this to all Hawaiians and our supporters.

Mahalo to everyone who has taken the time to express your outrage to the Office Of Hawaiian Affairs over their plans to give the Council For Native Hawaiian Advancement $1.5 million dollars earmarked for Hawai`is charter schools.

Without officially notifying the trustees ahead of time, OHAs administration decided to award the CNHA a contract to be a middleman in the disbursement of these funds.

Many of the affected charter schools have strongly objected to this CNHA contract, pointing out that not only does the CNHA have no expertise whatsoever in charter school education, their mission is political rather than educational.

The CNHA does NOT have the background and track record to justify awarding them such a large amount of funds that are earmarked for Hawaiian education.

The CNHA has never even bothered to build rapport and trust with Hawaiian charter schools and the families of those students who attend.
When asked recently by OHA trustees how much money the CNHA would keep out of the grant as administration fees, CNHA president Michelle Kauhane stated about 15%.

Stop and think about that for a minute - a fee of 15% is $225,000 - almost a quarter of a million dollars will be pocketed by the CNHA!

CNHA leadership will not think twice about depriving Hawai`i charter schools of $225,000 badly needed dollars.

Why? Because The CNHAs mission is simple - secure funding to force US fed...
