Annual On-Country Meetings

Annual On-Country Meetings

At the request of our respective regional committees – and in the interests of the broader Yamatji and Pilbara communities – YMAC coordinates annual on-Country meetings in each of our representative areas.

These events are held to provide culturally appropriate forums for Traditional Owners to gather and discuss shared concerns and solutions about key issues affecting them. As part of the proceedings, Ministers and other government representatives are also invited to attend and discuss matters directly with community.

The 2022 Yamatji on Country meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 3 and Thursday 4 August in Geraldton. Please note that YMAC continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and is a decision to cancel it is made we will send a further message to our Yamatji members and encourage you to check our Yamatji on Country event page back here closer to the event.

Due to concerns surrounding rising community transmission of COVID-19 in May 2022, YMAC has cancelled the 2022 Annual On-Country Bush Meeting at Yule RiverClick here to learn more.
