“Consult with, and according to their directions, effectively represent, the Aboriginal peoples of Cape York to regain rights to land and sea so we can preserve our culture and make our own decisions to achieve a better future.”

The Mission Statement was set down by the Community Members who united to form Cape York Land Council over 2 decades ago. CYLC has continued to respect the visions set down by our elders at that time and is recognised as part of a network of specialist community-based organisations representing the interests of the Aboriginal people of Cape York. We focus on achieving timely and meaningful outcomes for constituents on land and native title matters within the area.
