Native Title Forums

YMAC is hosting native title forums in Carnarvon on 27 June and Port Hedland on 29 June.

Free to attend, they are open to Traditional Owners and PBC staff from YMAC’s representative regions and will focus on grassroots native title issues, along with your rights and responsibilities.

These forums will provide an opportunity to discuss and learn more about the native title system and its related processes, including the different roles and functions of YMAC, Prescribed Bodies Corporate (PBCs), and the Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations (ORIC). Other topics likely to be covered will focus on non-claim specific matters, recent sector developments, and related work YMAC is currently undertaking.
