For Traditional Owners, Aboriginal cultural heritage is at the heart of caring for Country. It is unique to each group and its significance is recognised globally.
In 2021 the WA State Government will introduce the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Bill to parliament. In its current form the Bill will Not prevent the destruction of cultural heritage that drew the global community’s attention in 2020.
YMAC has been advocating for over a decade for legislative reform.
In partnership with fellow members from the WA Alliance of Native Title Representative Bodies and Service Providers and the National native Title Council we have launched ProtectAboriginalHeritageWA.org.au
Visit the hub to learn more and help prevent another irreplaceable piece of Australia’s cultural heritage being harmed or destroyed.
