URGENT Kabi dreaming site Djaki Kundu is being demolished NOW against First Nation Peoples' consent.

URGENT Kabi dreaming site Djaki Kundu is being demolished NOW against First Nation Peoples' consent.

Halt the destruction of the Seven Sisters Dreaming site as per the wishes of the Kabi tribal Elders and the fact that Australian Laws make it illegal to destroy 'Aboriginal cultural heritage' or 'Aboriginal relics'.

Why is this important?

Djaki Kundu (Rocky Ridge in English), also referred to as 'the Gympie Pyramid' is being destroyed as we speak, for a highway upgrade carried out by the Department of Transport and Main roads Queensland.

Djaki Kundu is an ancient and sacred healing site, connected to the Seven Sisters dreaming song-lines and stories, and a place to commune with the Star Ancestors.  Djaki Kundu is situated in Bunya Country near Gympie, in what is now called Queensland, Australia. 

Kabi Elders and guardians of the site have inherited a religious and spiritual Djakurpa tribal Law responsibility to protect the sacred site, which was built thousands of years ago by Kabi Ancestors.

Kabi tribal Elders are distressed that Queensland government authorities are destroying the site and it's ancient sacred relics in order to upgrade a highway, despite the fact Australian Laws make it illegal to destroy 'Aboriginal cultural heritage' or 'Aboriginal relics'.

Human rights abuse will not be tolerated of Kabi Country.

Urgent action needs to be taken, COME TO GYMPIE and follow posts by Kabi dreaming on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/Kabi.Dreaming/

SIGN PETITION and show your support by messaging Department of Transport and Main Roads QLD, QLD environment minister, governing authorities, offering legal assistance and sharing this breach of human rights in person and online.

Gympie QLD 4570, Australia

Reasons for signing

  • Australia has a history that needs & deserves to be preserved & the first nations people are the keepers of this land & it's true history. I believe the true history that was not taught in schools about Australia was kept from us & one day the indigenous people of this land will be able to tell us all the truth. They've been Supressed long enough & it's time we all did more to support them & stand with them to help keep all the sacred sites safe.
  • We need to honour the wisdoms and ways of our ancestors. There is a reason for Djaki Kundu being there. I believe this will reveal itself with the help of the Kabi elders. Destroying such a sacred place will have severe ramifications on those who participate in it's destruction as well as the area. Keep our sacred sites just that. There are always other solutions for those in leadership positions to take with intelligence, honesty and integrity.
  • Our First Nations people have a duty and obligation to preserve this site, and their cultural lore. Their rights are being overturned, and this place of cultural and historical significance is being destroyed in the name of “progress”. This is a criminal act.
