ABORIGINAL CORPORATION RNTBC
Based in Karratha, Western Australia, Robe River Kuruma Aboriginal Corporation’s vision is to work together as a community to establish a solid foundation towards independence, community wellbeing, cultural identity and healthy Country now and for future generations.
Robe River Kuruma Aboriginal Corporation (RRKAC) is the registered native title body corporate for Robe River Kuruma (RRK) native title determined areas.
The RRK people have traditional rights to an area covering nearly 16, 000 square kilometres in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Their lands lie within the Shire of Ashburton, and around the township of Pannawonica, and comprise part of the Fortescue River and the complete river system of the Jajiwurra (Robe) River, in the most westerly part of the Hamersley Range.
RRKAC is the Registered Native Title Body Corporate for the RRK People. The RRK People are the custodians of the lands they have inhabited for countless generations – our Country and Culture is who we are.
These lands largely lie within the Shire of Ashburton, and comprise part of the Fortescue River, and almost the complete Jajiwurra (Robe) River system located in the most westerly part of the Hamersley Range.
RRKAC is progressive and a powerful advocate for more than 360 members who are RRK people.
In addition to supporting the RRK people to attain and exercise their native title rights, responsibilities, and interests, RRKAC plays an essential role in representing and progressing the broader cultural, social, and economic wellbeing of the RRK People. RRKAC represents and advocates for RRK People in their dealings with Government and the private sector, monitors and implements obligations under various agreements negotiated with private sector interests on RRK Country, provides services that protect, maintain, promote, and preserve RRK cultural heritage, and utilises trust funds to deliver programs that improve the lives of the RRK People.
Working together as a community to establish a solid foundation towards independence, community wellbeing, cultural identity and healthy Country now and for future generations.
The RRKAC 2021- 2024 Strategic Plan serves as a guide for all RRK entities and their staff to achieve the ambitions of the RRK community and commit to focused initiatives, projects and programs that provide measurable benefit to RRK people.
