Knowing Our Story

Yawuru are building a comprehensive repository of cultural, archeological and historical information about Yawuru society and country. The information includes the extensive evidence that was presented to the Federal Court in support of the Yawuru determination and material used to write the Yawuru Cultural Management Plan.

Yawuru are combining all the written material with oral histories and knowledge of Yawuru people which will all be recorded in digital form. In this way Yawuru culture and history will be secured for future generations.

These records tell the story of how Yawuru people, across many generations, continued to practice customary law, speak our language and draw on the wisdom and knowledge of Yawuru people who have managed our country and society from time immemorial.
