Country, Culture, People, Future


Since early 2022, YMAC has been assisting Ngarlawangga Aboriginal Corporation in their participation on the Pilbara Cultural Land Management Project (PCLMP), a multi-stakeholder partnership connecting 12 groups of Traditional Owners in the Pilbara bioregion. YMAC provides technical expertise and support, with the aim of kick-starting a ranger program on Ngarlawangga Country in the near future.

YMAC is also facilitating the production of a Healthy Country Plan for Ngarlawangga People, through desktop work, field trips and workshops with Traditional Owners. The plan will identify natural and cultural values, as well as threats and concerns, then define strategies and programs that will guide future ranger activities and similar initiatives such as cultural programs.

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.
