Spear of Destiny by Uncle Alfred's Mens Group

Young Way

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description Spear of Destiny' was written, recorded and shot in just four days in Townsville, QLD as part of the Song Nation 2013 storytelling tour of Australia.

Uncle Alfred Smallwood is an Indigenous elder and community leader in Townsville, QLD who is creating real change for young men in his community.

Uncle Alfred's Men's Group is a volunteer service for young men caught up in the justice system, and who are trying to re-engage with community, culture and country and break the cycle of sentencing.

There is a focus on cultural mentoring, on 'reclaiming your spear' and taking responsibility for yourself and your family. This song and music video was created over four days in October 2013, to help spread Uncle Alfred's important message.

We would like to pay our respect to the people of the Bindal & Wulgurukaba, traditional owners of the country upon which this song was made.

Special thanks to Uncle Alfred Smallwood and Aunty Gail Mabo, Jane Westlake, Joel Westlake, Toby Finlayson, and of course all the Warriors from Uncle Alfred's Men's Group.
