Annual Regional Meetings & Annual Report

YMAC hosted our Pilbara and Yamatji Annual Regional Meetings in November 2023.

The ARMs are a great opportunity to meet up with other members and hear about the work we have done over the last 12 months.

For those who could not attend, we have recently published our 2023 Annual Report, which is available to view here.


 

Country is our mother, the provider and keeper of cultural belongings. Country and Culture go together. You can’t have one without the other.

Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners and custodians throughout Western Australia, and on whose Country we work. We acknowledge and respect their deep connection to their lands and waterways.

We honour and pay respect to Elders, and to their ancestors who survived and cared for Country.

Our offices are located on Whadjuk Country, Southern Yamatji Country, Yinggarda Country, Kariyarra Country, and Yawuru Country. We recognise the continuing culture, traditions, stories and living cultures on these lands and commit to building a brighter future together.
