Nyamal Native Title Determination

Our Culture

Added by Ngaarda Media

Description Nyamal Traditional Owners from Western Australia’s Pilbara region had their native title determination officially recognised at Shaw River on Tuesday about 100km east of Port Hedland.

The Nyamal people have been recognised as the traditional owners of 28,000 square kilometres of land in the Pilbara, from Marble Bar extending north towards Port Hedland.

The first claim for native title was submitted by Nyamal Traditional Owners in 1994 – two years after the ground-breaking Eddie Mabo case was won in the High Court.

Nyamal elder Doris Eaton talked with us and shared her thoughts, emotions and aspirations after the native title win!
