Dream of the Water Children: The Black Pacific

Dewayne Everettsmith, Aboriginal Singer

Dewayne Everettsmith is one of the most popular singer-songwriters in Australia today. He speaks and sings passionately to the continuing struggles of his people and brings light to the histories that he feels people must know, and to pay tribute to the ancestors and the lands that birthed him and the Aboriginal peoples on the Australian continent and the diaspora.  The song is entitled: Melaythina, and is available on I-Tunes. Here is the quote from the music video: “celebrating the Tasmanian Aboriginal people’s connection to Country. This is an edited version of a song written by Roger Sculthorpe, Heather Sculthorpe, June Sculthorpe, Chris Mansell, Di Cook and Theresa Sainty from the Tasmanian Aboriginal community and sung in palawa kani, Tasmanian Aboriginal language to school students on a TMAG program.”
