Sharna Oakley

Posted: June 7th, 2018

Sharna is a Malgana woman who grew up in Carnarvon. She is pleased to serve as a Yamatji Regional Committee member and YMAC Board Director because it gives her the opportunity to learn more about YMAC’s operations, contribute to its strategic direction and provide input on native title issues that matter. Sharna hopes to see Aboriginal people fighting for their land have access given back to them, so Elders can teach the younger generation about its background. In addition to her YMAC work, she works on the night patrol and for Ngala as a family mentor supporting parents of children up to 18 years old. Sharna was re-elected onto the YMAC Board and Yamatji Regional Committee in November 2021.
