Yanunijarra Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC
The Ngurrara people have been recognised as the native title holders in three determinations; Ngurrara Part A, Ngurrara –Area B and Ngurrara 2 Area C.
The first determination, Ngurrara Part A, includes 76,000sq km of land in the southern Kimberley region. The determination covers unallocated crown land at the northern boundary of the Great Sandy Desert and recognises:
- the Ngurrara people’s right to possess, occupy, use and enjoy the land to the exclusion of all others.
- rights to use and enjoy the flowing and underground waters for hunting, fishing and other traditional activities.
These rights can be passed on and inherited in accordance with the traditional laws and customs of the Ngurrara people.
