Overview

Yankunytjara Matutjara Aboriginal Corporation administers land on behalf of the Yankunytjatjara and Matutjara speaking groups who are ngurraritja (owners) for the Ananta (Umbeara), Kalka (Kulgera), Warnukula (Mulga Park), Wapirrka (Victory Downs) and Watju (Mount Cavenagh) regions in the far south of the Northern Territory. Their ownership over the land was recognised in the Victory Downs Pastoral Lease native title determination of May 2017.

In the consent determination, the Court held that non-exclusive native title rights and interests are held by the named ngurraritja over approximately 10,210 square kilometres of the Mount Cavenagh, Mulga Park, Umbeara and Victory Downs Perpetual Pastoral Leases. The determination area is approximately 215 kilometres south of Alice Springs, abutting the South Australian border.
