Karajarri Traditional Lands Association

Our people believe all forms of life and ecological processes, including the landscape, people, language and customs, are Pukarrikarrajangka — from the Dreamtime. Karajarri country is the source of spirit, culture and language for our people. We understand that it’s crucial to both look after our country and to create sustainable futures and opportunities for our people on country. The work of our Registered Native Title Body Corporate is directed by our cultural leaders and Karajarri Traditional Owners in line with our vision: Karajarri people living well, on Country.
