YMAC is pleased to present its Annual Report for the 2015/2016 financial year.

In this reporting period, YMAC has achieved a number of significant outcomes for Traditional Owners across the Yamatji and Pilbara regions. These achievements include consent determinations for the Jurruru and PKKP peoples, recognition for the Ngarluma people, and the dedication of an Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) for the Nyangumarta people.

Significant agreements also took place between Traditional Owners and miners, including a 100-year deal between the Banjima people and BHP Iron Ore that will ensure a bright future for Banjima culture and traditions.

For more information about our work during the reporting period, you can download a copy of the Annual Report here.

In September 2015, the Puutu Kunti Kurrama and Pinikura (PKKP) peoples celebrated the legal recognition of their native title rights. This video documents these moments and some of the lives the decision has influenced.

After 14 years, the government of Australia has recognised what the PKKP peoples have always known.
