Yamatji on Country

The second 2022 Yamatji on Country meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 3 and Thursday 4 August 2022 at the Bundiyarra Aboriginal Community Aboriginal Corporation in Geraldton.

Yamatji on Country offers a vital opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to come together through shared discussion, creating a forum to build relationships and provide a platform for sincere and collective engagement across the community.

The 2022 meeting agenda will include an update with what is happening with respect to heritage protection at a Sate and Federal level, as well as discussion on community issues affecting Aboriginal people in the region. The intended result is to identify solution-based responses to issues that can be presented to key stakeholders for delivery in partnership with Aboriginal people.

If you are a PBC or Aboriginal corporation and would like to be involved in this year’s event or provide support through financial donation, please contact Ken Capewell or Carrum Mourambine or call our Geraldton Office on 1800 270 709.
