Our Values

“We value and respect the traditional authority structures, where they exist, and support local leadership arrangements that foster sustainable development and advancement of Australia’s first people.

Our values recognise and support elder structures which have over the many centuries provided guidance and nurturing and provided the means to pass on important cultural knowledge.

Leadership comes in many forms  and the unique system of leadership structure for Australia’s first peoples has adapted but maintained the basic system of passing on important and often sacred knowledge about the land, the animals and the people who are custodians of the land .”
