THE STRENGTH WE HAVE – CAPE YORK LAND COUNCIL

CAMPFIRE GOVERNANCE

It is the voice of Traditional Owners that guides our direction. We are governed by the will of Cape York.

MEETING PLACE

Cape York Land Council is a safe place where big ideas and powerful ambitions are driven by expertise and passion.

HUMAN TRACKS

We were there from the beginning and we forged the human path to native title determination. We know where we’re going because we know where we’ve been.

RESPECT

The Cape York Land Council respects that all Traditional owners have autonomy and speak to their own lands.

CULTURAL SIGNIFICANCE

The preservation and promotion of the traditions and cultures of Aboriginal people is a key driver for Land Council’s mission.

PEOPLE

We are you. We too share the passion and pride of the people of Cape York and are dedicated to improving the lives of real people.

TRADITIONAL OWNERS HAVE DRIVEN THE NARRATIVE

After a lengthy period of consultation on country with Traditional owners the Cape York Land Council have been given a very clear mandate on what success in this Native title space looks like:

  • Traditional owners want the return of their land, not the politics
  • Traditional owners must make their own decisions and speak for their country
  • Traditional owners want certainty and not confusion
  • Traditional owners don’t want this to take another quarter of a century. It’s time for the dispossession to end.

Any process that causes disruption or lacks unity will almost certainly delay the opportunity for this justice significantly.

SUCCESSFUL DETERMINATIONS

WHAT IS ONE CLAIM?

Stronger Together

Native Title is an asset for Cape York’s First Nations people with potential to build livelihoods free from dependency. We will use it to build indigenous led business and enable our children to have jobs in our communities.

In supporting One Claim, we have the best chance for the native title determinations to be made efficiently and provide these opportunities for our people.
