Update from Bulo MP Sam Basil in Australia

Last Saturday Bulolo MP Sam Basil’s guide from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) Tim Morris accompanied him to Kwinana outside Perth to witness a traditional ceremony.

“The elder of the Yargon tribe Trevor Wally gave a fire gift to me after the fire ceremony witnessed by the Kwinana deputy mayor Dennis Woods,” Mr Basil said.

“A gift was also presented by the deputy mayor and I presented three Bulolo bilums to the officials.

“On Sunday we flew from Perth to Karratha from where I am currently visiting landowners and affected communities asking questions and doing comparison with PNG systems and the Australian indigenous system.”
