Land agreements give pastoral station access to Traditional Owners
Posted: December 6th, 2013
The Budina People have entered into a series of Indigenous Land Use Agreements (ILUAs) with pastoralists on their traditional country, approximately 150kms east of Coral Bay.
The agreements formalise how the Traditional Owners and pastoralists will co-exist on the land. The ILUAs deal with issues of land access, protection of Budina heritage sites, and many of the practical arrangements that allow both parties to enjoy their rights to the land.
Budina Elder Clive Lyndon said, “These agreements change the relationship between our community and the station owners. It’s recognition of our connection to this country. We’re happy with this outcome.”
