Added by Ngaarda Media

Description The 5th Annual On-Country Bush Meeting at Yule River was another extraordinary gathering bringing together more than 400 Traditional Owners from across the Pilbara to discuss issues affecting them and their families.

The meeting endorsed Pilbara Aboriginal Voice (PAV), the remarkable group borne out of the 4th meeting in 2017.

PAV has made significant progress working together to address issues including language preservation, remote housing, the protection of Aboriginal heritage, Constitutional Recognition, health, education, justice, and the welfare of children.

This year, the 40-strong group welcomed more than 20 new members and was officially endorsed and recognised by both Federal and State Aboriginal Affairs Ministers Senator Nigel Scullion and Ben Wyatt and others.

PAV was acknowledged as a historic union of language groups working as one voice to call on all levels of government to improve living conditions for Aboriginal West Australians.
