The chair of NACCHO Justin Mohamed today congratulated the partnership of Nunkuwarrin Yunti of South Australia Inc,the Aboriginal Health Council of SA, Port Lincoln Aboriginal Health Service, and the Cancer Council SA for the Rewrite Your Story campaign that was honoured with the  Excellence in Health Through the Promotion of Healthy and Smoke Free Lifestyles Award at the 19th Deadlys®

The Rewrite Your Story campaign, developed by the Puiyurti team at Nunkuwarrin Yunti of South Australia Inc, embraces the culture of story-telling and yarning through the power of film and social media.

Rewrite Your Story is a community development campaign aiming to raise awareness of smoking’s harmful effects on your body and community.

The campaign featured the real-life smoking stories of 16 local ambassadors to inspire Adelaide’s Aboriginal communities to rewrite their stories and give up smokes for good.

The campaign doesn’t preach the ‘don’t smoke message’, but encourages the community to come together, share their stories and support one another to break the smoking cycle.

It was supported by the South Australian Government’s Give Up Smokes for Good campaign in partnership with the Aboriginal Health Council of SA, Port Lincoln Aboriginal Health Service, and the Cancer Council SA.

The campaign has been well received by the Aboriginal community of Adelaide and has been widely covered in media, as well as being picked up by NITV who have committed to showing these stories over the next three years.

This is the first year the Excellence in Health Through the Promotion of Healthy and Smoke Free Lifestyles has been awarded and it is proudly supported by the Wellington Aboriginal Corporation Health Service (WACHS). Wellington Aboriginal Corporation Health Service (WACHS) aims to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to take control of their individual, family and community health needs through the Aboriginal community controlled health service model.

WACHS is a non-for-profit organisation that provides specific health and specialist programs to support clients/ patients in addressing their health and well-being needs and issues in a culturally appropriate way. As well as providing these specific health related services, our service endeavours to provide self-determination and empower Aboriginal people to take control and responsibility for their health and well-being.

Vibe Australia produces the Deadlys®, Vibe 3on3®, InVibe, Deadly Vibe®, Deadly Sounds and Deadly TV. The Deadlys® 2013 will air on SBS ONE on Sunday 14 September at 9.30pm and repeated on NITV on Wednesday 18 September at 9.30pm.

NACCHO Deadly Awards results:Deadly Archie wants action from Abbott

PV-archie-wide

Singer-songwriter Archie Roach, recipient of a Lifetime Contribution Award for Healing the Stolen Generations at Tuesday night’s Deadly Awards, says new Prime Minister Tony Abbott needs to prove he is serious about indigenous Australia.

‘‘I don’t know what to think about Tony Abbott. He reckons he wants to work with indigenous people but only time will tell if we are able to work with this man and his Government and bring about some real change.’’

Roach’s work focused an international spotlight on the stolen generations and did much to mobilise Australia into action.

Roach says the Northern Territory intervention remains a ‘‘sore point’’ for indigenous people and he also wants to see Australia’s first people recognised in the constitution. Indigenous people should have also have a say in who is considered genuine asylum seekers: ‘‘People who are sincere. We know there are genuine people fleeing war torn countries who have no hope,’’ Roach said.

Roach, who suffered a stroke in 2010 and had surgery for lung cancer in 2011, also won a Deadly last night at the Sydney Opera House for indigenous album of the year, for Into the Bloodstream. “I’m just happy to be able to make music at this stage of my career, so it’s a great honour to be recognised in this way,” Roach said.

Deadlys organisers said Roach’s contributions to his people “are deep, long-lasting and real . . . his work focused an international spotlight on the stolen generations and did much to mobilise Australia into action”.

One of indigenous Australia’s highest honours, the Marcia Langton award for lifetime achievement in leadership, went to controversial retired NSW magistrate Pat O’Shane.

Ms O’Shane, a Kunjandji woman, was the first woman to head a ministry (the NSW Department of Aboriginal Affairs in 1981) and the first Aboriginal barrister and magistrate in Australia. Ms O’Shane, 72, retired from the Local Court of NSW this year, after a 26-year career on the bench.

Deadlys organisers said she “blazed a path for others to follow . . . she is a genuine and inspiring role model for others”.

Ms O’Shane is also the subject of an unresolved Judicial Commission investigation into many of her decisions as a magistrate.

Pop singer Jessica Mauboy, of Darwin, repeated her 2012 success by again winning the female artist of the year/single of the year double, this time for Something’s Got a Hold on Me, which is the theme song for this year’s NRL season. Country singer Troy Cassar-Daley was male artist of the year.

The Sapphires, which has so far made $20.4 million worldwide, was named film of the year, while cast member Deborah Mailman was named best female actor.

The acclaimed television drama series Redfern Now was TV show of the year, while one of the program’s lead actors, Luke Carroll, was named best male actor.

Best hip-hop group was Melbourne’s Yung Warriors, while hip-hop duo Stik n Move, from Queanbeyan, picked up the the most promising new talent in music award.

Other major arts awards went to Steve Mullawalla Dodd (Jimmy Little lifetime achievement award for music), Brenda Croft (visual artist of the year), Ella Havelka (dancer of the year) and singer-songwriter Shellie Morris (excellence in cultural advancement). Traditional Healers of Central Australia: Ngangkari won the published book prize.

Australia’s largest Indigenous awards night looks back on the year that was in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia and, year after year, comes up with the winners contributing on the national stage and at the grassroots in communities across Australia.

Nominations are still open for the 2013 Deadly Awards at http://www.deadlys.com.au and there’s still time to have your say on who you think is Deadly. Nominations close on 30 June 2013, with finalists announced at the official launch of Deadlys on 18 July.

The Deadlys will be held on 10 September at the Sydney Opera House in a gala event, including a Red Carpet, Sunset Ceremony and mainstage show.

“The underlying spirit of the Deadlys is always defined by what is happening within our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. This year is different to 2012 because it’s been a different year in the Indigenous arts, sports and music scene,” Executive Producer Gavin Jones says.

The Deadly Awards are now in their 19th year and enjoy significant support from the community. “We are preparing for a show that offers the highest standard of performance from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, and one which puts achievement and outstanding contribution centre stage,”

Gavin says. “One of the most enjoyable aspects for me as executive producer of the Deadlys is the opportunity to showcase our unique Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture to the wider Australian public, and also to put forward our remarkable role models – the finalists and winners in the award categories – on a national stage and honour that achievement.”

Once finalists are announced on 18 July, voting will be open to the public across the award categories. Online nominations can be lodged at http://www.deadlys.com.au The Deadly Awards are produced by the Deadly Vibe Group who also produce Vibe 3on3, Deadly Vibe, Deadly Sounds, InVibe, Move It Mob Style and Deadly TV.
