DT: Meaningful Indigenous Employment

Develop options for meaningful and long term employment for local Kuku Yalanji Traditional Owners which provide social, cultural and environmental benefits.

Why it is important?

Local Traditional Owners hold many thousands of years of traditional ecological knowledge in their stories and culture and their contribution to natural resource management can be significant.  Options for meaningful employment, particularly in their traditional country, provides an opportunity for Traditional Owners to stay on country and contribute their significant knowledge and skills to its management.

Examples of Local Action

  • Continue the negotiation and transition processes already underway between state government and Traditional Owners to transfer management of state land to local Traditional Owners.
  • Funding to employ local Indigenous people in revegetation and other natural resource management activities.
