Description

Amongst many other programs GSAC exists to reduce the incident of Juvenile crime by providing counselling and programmes for the social development of youth by providing clients with emotional support and promoting desirable skills and values.

GSAC is governed by an all volunteer Board of Directors.


GSAC operates on two sites- the town based youth centre in Eastward Road, and Gunnado
Farm 5 klms east of Walkaway. GSAC owns Gunnado freehold and has done so since 1993.

In 1987, in response to a community need to address the perceived problem of numbers of
youth, perceived to be mainly of Aboriginal descent, being on the streets in the CBD area and the potential connections with disturbances and/or street crime,community volunteers would walk the streets to talk with the young people present. Two youth councillors were then funded
by the Federal Department of Employment, Education and Training.

This program has expanded and continues today. Every Thursday five staff will drive out to the CBD to engage with the children, providing food and fun.

Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation

  • Type:Aboriginal,Charity,Association

  • Established:1999

Description

Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation (YMAC) is the native title representative body for traditional owners of the Pilbara, Murchison and Gascoyne regions of Western Australia. There are over 25 traditional owner groups represented by the corporation, which protects the interests of the people and their country and provides them with a range of professional services, such as legal representation for native title claims and heritage protection services.

One example of the types of services YMAC provides is the work they have carried out facilitating discussions between the Nyangumarta traditional owners and the Marine Policy and Planning Branch of the Western Australian Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) on an environmental planning and conservation project for the Eighty Mile Beach area. DEC is researching future marine parks and reserves along the Pilbara Coast.

The Nyangumarta people have been teaching DEC staff about their connection with their country and the cultural importance to them of sacred sites and ceremonial activities. The Nyangumarta have a phrase—‘Ngalpa warran, ngalpa marrngu’ or ‘healthy country, healthy people’—that captures their fundamental philosophy. After discussions with DEC about the future of the coastal strip, the importance of protecting their cultural sites, stories and songlines was seen as a key component of any marine park proposal in the area. The program has also raised awareness among the Nyangumarta people of the planning process for any marine park proposal.

The chief executive officer of YMAC, Simon Hawkins, said, ‘This is a great example of genuine consultation with Traditional Owners. It’s encouraging to see Government realising the value that Traditional Owners bring to environmental planning.’

This is just one example of the work undertaken by YMAC. Incidentally, the name of the corporation comes from the word for Aboriginal ‘man’ in the Murchison and Gascoyne regions, ‘yamatji’ and the word for Aboriginal people ‘marlpa’ by some traditional owners in the Pilbara region.
