The latest issue of YMAC News is now available for download!
Our cover story is all about the Federal Court’s decision to recognise the Banjima people’s native title rights, and includes lots of photos of Banjima community members who attended the Court Hearing.
There are also photos from preservation evidence hearings for the Kariyarra and Jurruru claims. These hearings gave elders the chance to make sure the Federal Court could record their knowledge, and represent significant progress on both of these claims.
You can also read about a scholarship for Yugunga-Nya students, a visit by some of the Yamatji Committee members to the Western Desert, and the new book by author and elder Clarrie Cameron. There is also an update from YMAC’s policy officer Christina Colegate about the Federal Government’s Review of Native Title Organisations.
