Land & Culture

Ngaanyatjarra Land and Culture (Land and Culture)

Land and Culture supports traditional owners in traditional land management such as patch burning and encourages the handing down of traditional ecological knowledge and the Tjukurrpa (dreaming stories) to young people. We also assist visiting scientists studying threatened species in the region.

The Land and Culture program works with hundreds of Members each year from across all communities to care for country and manage land access by miners and others wanting to work on the Ngaanyatjarra Lands. The land access program manages consultations between mining explorers and local traditional owners to ensure cultural heritage is protected in exploration activities.



Tjumalampatju: Our Stories database on the internet is a community based database.  This means that  Community  members  participate  by placing names to faces on photos  or adding stories to a particular photo or event by either text, movie or audio .
