Made it to Thursday Island today. You know it's a good anchorage when you can catch dinner on your arrival! #sailing #sailinglife #fish #spanishmackerel #ti #torresstrait #noms

“Women are allowed to be loud, so we’re going to be loud. We’re not gonna muck around. Why do we keep being told be quiet, why do we keep being told ‘shhh’? You want loud? I’ll show you loud.”

Ghenoa Gela (@gizmozfro) is a little sister, a daughter, granddaughter, comic, teacher, rebel, gold-medallist, air-guitarist, charmer, TV star, Torres Strait mainlander, walking political statement. And now she’s made a show, told through movement and words. She’s drawing on the traditional and the everyday, the political and the personal, to tell a story that’s irreverent, provocative and moving.

Ghenoa Gela's MY URRWAI is @belvoirst now until February 4.

‘In this city ladies look pretty, guys tells jokes so they can seem witty...” That’s probably as far as we can go with those lyrics for a children’s book, but earworms aside, we’re seriously “busting some moves” (get it? 😉) for our first release of 2018, ‘In the City I See’, the third book in our ‘Young Art’ board book series that showcases the work of young #Indigenous artists. The creative talent behind this little beauty is #TorresStrait Islander, Tori-Jay Mordey. Check out her awesome artwork and phenomenal skills at @tori_jyeay. Available February. ❤️

But here on Yorke Island 🌴, it's fresh caught crayfish, coral trout and reef fish simply smoked over coconut and driftwood for lunch. ⠀ ⠀

Well it took a few missed shots, lost a monster that I thought I rolled. But finally landed a solid 1m+ Spanish Mac on my JBL pole spear.

STORY WATERS 〰
Segar Passi, who as a child taught himself to paint, has been making art for over six decades. In the 1960s he was one of eight Torres Strait Island artists asked by anthropologist Margaret Lawrie to record, in paintings and drawings, the history, culture, flora and fauna of the Torres Strait.
The only surviving contributor to Margaret Lawrie’s landmark cultural project, Passi is now in his seventies but he has never lost his passion for painting. One of his particular interests, as an artist and as a cultural custodian, is weather conditions, and their importance in the lives of his people. He has devoted much time to communicating this knowledge to children on Mer, and many of his pictures are themed around weather.

Story Waters is on display until 11 Feb '18. -

Gift of the Blair Family in memory of Heather Blair.

TSI TOUR 
Today on Yorke Island (Masig) we had the privilege to sit down and talk to some elders and hear their stories.  Mr Ned Mosby and Moses Mene spoke to us about the fishing industry and when they used to dive for trochus shells for a living.  More of this to come later. 
Thanks for all the hospitality so far Masig.

Spent Sunday chasing Spanish mackerel with Richard at #straightrock in the #torresstrait from the tinny. We shot 6 fish from 5 drifts. #tinnybashing #mackerel @spearfishingsuperstore

New review up about a wonderful book I read this weekend, given the topical nature of indigenous affairs around Australia Day, I recommend it highly.

Cheers to Readings St Kilda, for having it out for me to discover, shout-out to Black Inc. for publishing this considered, bipartisan exploration of the ideas surrounding the recognition of our First Nations in the Australian Constitution. Well done all round. @blackincbooks @readingsbooks .

The kids out here on Yorke Island were so intrigued by how the kites worked. They loved playing with the clicker bar we set up at their school while the kite was pumped up on the oval. So much fun. ⠀⠀

REVIEW: MY NAME IS JIMI ★★★★ @belvoirst
Jimi Bani is the genial host of this performance featuring four generations of his family: brothers Richard and Conwell; Bani’s son Dmitri; mum Agnes and grandmother Petharie Bani. With dioramas, handcrafted pop-up storybooks and video cameras as teaching and storytelling aids, Bani and family open eyes and hearts to life on Mabuiag Island with a series of cleverly staged vignettes in which the past and the present, the mythic and the everyday are seamlessly woven. There is disco dancing and a lecture from the esteemed British ethnographer Alfred Cort Haddon (warmly sent up by Jimi). There is traditional drumming, dance and song and the grisly story of an evil spirit acted out with cut-out figures in a beautifully-made model village.
Bani is a tremendously affable performer and the show, which runs for a swift-seeming 80 minutes, is a delight. There are moments, too, that bring a lump to your throat. Don’t miss it – and if you have kids, bring them.

While everyone else still has a week or two of holidays left to enjoy, tomorrow is my last official day of waking up whenever I want to, going to bed whenever I want to, wearing slobby clothes because I can, going to the toilet exactly when I need too and not having to stress about eating at specific times.
5 days jams packed full of new learning experiences, meeting new colleagues and starting fresh.
The chance to change the narrative doesn’t come along to often. Here’s to changing mine.
