Aboriginal Community of Adjahdura Land
On this country there are:
* Traditional Owners with cultural knowledge
* Traditional Owners with very little cultural knowledge
* Non-Traditional Owners (broader Aboriginal community).
Traditional Owners Group Formed
The Adjahdura Traditional Owners with cultural knowledge have banded together to form the Adjahdura Land Traditional Owners Group (ALTOG). The group was formed to ensure that the Traditional Owners with cultural knowledge of Adjahdura Land have a voice and an active role in shaping the future of their country and people and speak out to protect our heritage and culture.
This group has been structured like a traditional group should be - not like a white fella corporation.
And we pay tribute to our mothers Elaine Newchurch and Irene Agius who have passed away and fought hard before us and have taught us what we know.
The group, throught the Adjahdura Narungga Heritage group have been very active in standing up for the rights of the Traditional Owners of Adjahdura Land. And should be consulted on all issues dealing with Adjahdura Land (Yorke Peninsula, South Australia), culture and heritage.
First Official Satement - The Narungga ILUA
In their first official statement as a group, the Adjahdura Land Traditional Owners Group states that it officially does not recognize the Narungga Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) - in a traditional way it was unlawful because of the way it was handled. The Narungga ILUA will not benefit the traditional owners - it has extinguish what little native title land right we have - and offers no protection for culture and heritage. Traditional Owners put up many objections to the ILUA but the National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT) have gone ahead and registered the ILUA anyway, without any consultation between the parties.
Joining the Adjahdura Land Traditional Owners Group
Joining the group is open to all Traditional Owners of Adjahdura Land with cultural knowledge of their country.
