Heritage Services

YMAC is a strong representative and advocate for the interests of Traditional Owners in the Pilbara and Yamatji regions. This focus on Traditional Owners and their knowledge, beliefs and values underpins our heritage management strategy at all times.

Our Heritage team provides a range of services (via service agreement) to our clients dependent on and tailored to their unique needs and requirements, and as directed by them.

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.
