Summary TURF WARS Last year, a series of violent incidents between African and Aboriginal teenagers in Darwin escalated into a cultural gang war. Police say there's no doubt race played a role in the conflict between marginalised Aboriginal youths and the African teens who have fled war-torn countries as refugees. "Wherever you got a group of disadvantaged young people who don't have the resources there's always gonna be a problem" says refugee worker Ali Nur. But now, efforts to reconcile the two groups are paying off. Video journalist Allan Clarke travelled to Darwin to discover how these young people are overcoming their differences. DAMIAN SMITH When a 10-year-old Damian Smith saw his first ballet performance, his future was decided. "It was almost as though my life began at that point....I just didn't look backwards, nor sideways. I was just moving forward, moving forward very aggressively, just wanting to dance in whatever capacity that would be", he tells video journalist Allan Clarke. A love and talent for dance have since taken this Koori lad from the News South Wales central coast to the San Fransisco Ballet, where he is a principal dancer. Join Living Black on Sunday at 4:30pm as we talk to Damian Smith about life in the USA as one of the world's premier ballet dancers. LANGUAGE WARNING There are urgent calls for a state-wide Aboriginal language interpreter service by West Australian health and justice workers. A report into the lack of interpreting services has shown that one in five Indigenous people in remote WA had difficulty understanding their doctors and lawyers, with potentially serious consequences. "I'm pretty sure there are people around in WA and the rest of Australia that are in jail because they have been misunderstood or haven't understood the charges" says WA Aboriginal Legal Service CEO Dennis Eggington. Join Living Black on Sunday at 4:30pm for this report from video journalist Kodie Bedford.
