The Tjayiwara Unmuru Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC administers land on behalf of the Tjayiwara Unmuru Peoples. Their ownership over the land was first recognised in the Tjayiwara Unmuru Native Title Claim determination of July 2013.

This matter concerns the recognition of the Tjayiwara Unmuru People’s non-exclusive native title rights and interests in an area of approximately 4500 square kilometres of pastoral lease land in the central northern part of South Australia. The determination are adjoins the earlier De Rose Hill native title claim (De Rose v State of South Australia (No 2) [2005] FCAFC 110). The land and waters in the determination area are covered entirely by non-exclusive pastoral leases.

The Court recognised a number of non-exclusive rights and interests, including the rights to access and camp on the area, enjoy the land, teach and conduct ceremonies and to protect sites of significance on the area. The native title rights and interests are for personal, domestic and communal use but do not include commercial use of the determination area or the resources from it.

The claim group membership substantially mirrors that of the earlier De Rose Hill native title claim. The Applicant and the State therefore relied on the extensive evidence given in that matter, in addition to further anthropological evidence to substantiate connection to the particular area. The native title claim group identify as Yankunytjatjara People with some Pitjantjatjara ancestry.
