YMAC fights for Aboriginal heritage act re-draft

Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation says it will continue to lobby and fight for the Aboriginal Heritage Act Amendment Bill, which is currently before parliament, to be re-drafted.

YMAC said following a two-day meeting of WA Alliance of Aboriginal Land Councils, the representatives agreed amendments must include the voice of Aboriginal people.

Co-chair Doris Eaton said Aboriginal people were still not being consulted on matters concerning their heritage and culture.
