What We Do
We advocate and work to improve the social and economic wellbeing of our community through enterprise, improved housing and facilities, local employment and preserving Gurindji culture and heritage.
Our role as the Prescribed Body Corporate
In May 2014 the Federal Court made a determination of Native Title over the Township of Kalkaringi in favour of Traditional Owners, with Gurindji Aboriginal Corporation becoming the Prescribed Body Corporate (PBC) for the Kalkaringi Indigenous Land Use Area (ILUA). As the PBC we have special prescribed functions under the Native Title Act 1993 (NTA) to:
hold, protect and manage determined native title in accordance with the objectives of Kalkaringi Traditional Owners, and;
ensure certainty for governments and other parties interested in accessing or regulating native title land and waters by providing a legal entity to manage and conduct the affairs of Traditional Owners.
Through advocacy, effective native title agreement-making and partnerships we’re delivering significant social and economic benefits across key areas of:
Community enterprise and local employment
New and improved housing for community members
New and improved community facilities
Preserving Gurindji culture and heritage
Supporting families, elderly and youth
We do not receive any royalty or lease income so rely purely on our community enterprise model and fundraising.
