On Friday, Traditional Owners in the Pilbara gathered together at our Tom Price office to learn more about native title.
YMAC’s open day, was an opportunity for local Traditional Owners to get information on theirnative title claims and other matters that affect country, such as mining, development, heritage and environmental protection. The day included a welcome to country by elder, Lola Young and a BBQ lunch where community members could discuss native title matters in an informal setting.
“It was a great day with people popping in to say hello, enjoying lunch and chatting about what’s affecting their communities. It was good to have my questions answered and know that our native title claim, the Innawonga claim, is moving forward. It made me happy to see so many Aboriginal people care about what happens to their country and community.” said Lola.
