Dana & Kerrianne Cox

Dana & Kerianne Cox

Dana and Kerrianne performed on Friday at a fundraiser for Red Inc. Disability. Kerrianne is an award-winning, independent Original Sovereign performing artist of Australia.

Kerrianne’s music celebrates the spiritual depths of her culture and the struggles of the First People’s road to empowerment. Each song is a story of transformation, a healing journey towards Sovereignty. Listen and share the vision from a culture that cannot be contained within stone monuments, a culture that reveres the Earth as the Mother-source of all the living.

Dana With Echidna (“Australian Porcupine”) in Western Australia

Dana with Echidna

A family traveling through Halls Creek, Western Australia was selling this large echidna for petrol (gas) money. They had caught it some 1000 km south near Alice Springs. They were asking $200 for it.  Some families in the region keep echidnas as pets, though this is illegal. I managed to talk them down to $50. My hosts gave it food and water, then released it into echidna habitat near Halls Creek.
