On 9 July 2018, for the first time in history, the Aboriginal flag was raised on Anzac Hill after a smoking ceremony and address from Alice Springs town councillor Catherine Satour. Shirleen Campbell, an Arrernte woman from the Tangentyere Women’s Family Safety Group, described the ceremony as ‘an emotional and bittersweet occasion’. My 360-degree view of Alice Springs celebrates inclusivity and encourages all people to embrace every view. Flying the flag inspired by the red earth around Anzac Hill is a step towards that inclusive view.
