The 2012 Indigenous Governance Awards are seeking outstanding examples of Indigenous governance in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, projects or initiatives.

The awards, created by Reconciliation Australia in partnership with BHP Billiton, highlight success in Indigenous Australia—strong leadership, good management, effective partnerships and brave, creative thinking.

There are two award categories, for incorporated Indigenous organisations and non-incorporated initiatives or projects. Prizes include cash for the winners of each category and corporate partnerships for mentoring and assistance for finalists.

Applications close 31 May 2012. Visit for more information.

2010 marks the 10th anniversary of the Bridge Walks for Reconciliation and Reconciliation Australia has launched a new public awareness campaign.
Join the campaign and spread the word:

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.
