Managing Resources to Map Country: Boonthamurra People’s Summit 2019

By 10 August, 2019June 10th, 2020Announcements and Community News

Earlier this year, the Boonthamurra PBC was awarded a grant of $96,000 under the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s Indigenous Advancement Strategy. This grant was provided to allow the PBC to complete a project on ‘Mapping Resources to Manage Country’, which aims to identify all the resources available to the Boonthamurra people and combine this information to develop a practical plan for our future.

To launch this project, the Boonthamurra PBC is holding a Boonthamurra People’s Summit in late September, to bring our people together and enable their voices to be heard. During this two-day event, we will workshop the three key activities that make up the project: cultural mapping, a skills audit, and a stakeholder engagement plan. We want to hear opinions, concerns and goals of the Boonthamurra people, and encourage participation in the design and implementation of the project.
