YMAC is sponsoring the category of Aboriginal Corporation/Organisation – Outstanding Commitment to Best Practice in Member Support and Development. It is one of a dozen categories that organisations can enter.

Nominations are now open and you have until 30 August to complete them. Make sure you follow the Pilbara for Purpose Facebook page to learn where to enter:, and read the  2019 Nomination Package for more details.




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.
