Nyangumarta Karajarri Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC
The Nyangumarta Karajarri Aboriginal Corporation administers for the Nyamgumarta and Karajarri People. Their ownership was recognised in a Federal Court hearing, which was delivered on country at Anna Plains Station on the Western Australian coast, 250 kilometres south of Broome. The consent determination finalised applications mad by the Nyangumarta and Karajarri Peoples. The nature and extent of native title rights and interest held by the Nyangumarta and Karajarri Peoples existing in balance of the determination area includes:
- the right to access, live, enter and remain on the land, to camp and erect shelters and other structures;
- the right to hunt, fish and gather for personal, domestic and non-commercial communal needs;
- the right to take, share and exchange natural resources;
- the right to engage in cultural activities in the area, including the transmission of cultural heritage knowledge; and
- the right to visit, maintain and protect from physical harm, places, sites and areas of significance, according to the traditional laws and customs
In addition, two ILUAs (Indigenous Land Use Agreements) have purportedly been negotiated as part of the mediation process: Nyangumarta Karajarri and Mandora Station Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) and Nyangumarta Karajarri and Anna Plains Station (ILUA).
