Here is a message from Coedie about the Tour de Carmichael. 

ngadyu narri coedie
My name is coedie

ngadyu dannga Wirdi
My language is Wirdi

ngadyu yamba nani wanggan yagalinggu
My homelands are the wangan and jagalingou

ngaya wandu-na wadirra bama gayu wurba-gu ngadyu yamba nani
I'm asking every man and woman to come to my homelands

yina dalgayu gundarra ngali gara banggayn
This is a big fight and we're not afraid

ngali wurba-na
We're coming

Along the journey we’ll be stopping and sharing about the significance of our Totems, Twin Hills, the Belyando, the Carmichael river and the importance of our sacred Doongmabulla Springs and other dreaming stories. You’ll be invited to the camp and ceremonial ground that I set up for a smoking ceremony in August last year where you’ll be part of some great yarns and teachings.
