YMAC News Issue 35

Posted: April 23rd, 2018

The latest edition of the YMAC newsletter is available for viewing online. Read about:

  • The Malgana Shark Bay People’s Native Title Claim Group successful application for State Government funding for the “Pathway to a Malgana Country
    Land and Sea Management Program”.
  • An alternative settlement of native title claims involving Southern Yamatji, Hutt River, Mullewa Wadjari and Widi Mob claim groups. It is hoped that these negotiations with the State of WA will lead to an agreement called the Geraldton Alternative Settlement Agreement (GASA).
  • Changes to the Pilbara and Yamatji Regional Committees and welcome the new members.

As always, there’s a lot happening. In 2018 we hope to progress six native title claims to determination in both the Yamatji and Pilbara regions. We are also busy
planning the Annual On-Country Bush Meeting (Yule River) which is happening on 11 and 12 July – hope to see you there!
