We are re-sharing this video we made last year to remind everyone to please respect this beautiful country we live on - that has been the proud home of the Miriwoong people for many thousands of years.

Scotty spoke with Peter Griffiths-Sebastian from Pete's Cultural Adventures and Steve from Silent Tours, about a big clean-up of country they're planning. It's taking place on the weekend of the 8th 9th and 10th of March 2024. LISTEN HERE: https://soundcloud.com/waringarri-media/scotty-with-pete-steve-on-big-clean-up-in-knx Pete and Steve have been concerned about the issue of rubbish on country and have decided to rally the community behind this big clean-up, and hope it will help inform/educate more people. It comes after many recent posts on local online community boards on the problem – claiming that the situation is getting worse. They say it’s shameful and embarrassing when they take tourists out on country to see so much rubbish, and Pete says it hurts him to see it as a proud Miriwoong man, and it pains local elders.
