Karajarri Traditional Lands Association – Indigenous Protected Area Program

The Karajarri Traditional Land Association (KTLA) with support from the Kimberley Land
Council now have one of the biggest indigenous Land and Sea teams in the Kimberley
Region of North- West Australia. The group of 19 people work tirelessly to protect country
and culture, focusing primarily on the community driven targets of cultural knowledge
revitalisation, protection of heritage sites, bush food utilisation, preservation of fresh and
saltwater places and protection of marine resources. In more recent times the KTLA have
utilised technology to assist in Cultural Heritage Management. The Karajarri Cultural
Database helps to store, organise and share cultural information. This seminar will provide
an overview of Indigenous Land Management from a Karajarri perspective while showing
some of the more modern tools and initiatives for doing so.
