Healthy Country Plan

May 25th, 2015

Our Dream is to bring our country back to life, like it was before, by being on country to protect our sites and share our proud culture with the rest of the world. To help achieve this, we prepared the Southern Kaantju Ngaachi HEALTHY COUNTRY PLAN.

Planning for this document commenced in 2012. The outcome of our planning helped us to understand that you can’t have healthy country, if the people aren’t healthy and our culture isn’t kept strong, and this can be in any order.

The Healthy Country Plan was launched in 2014. It includes a clear vision and mission statements, agreed targets and an outline of the threats we will face in reaching our targets.

We will work to manage our country and nurture the biodiversity so that our country will keep its clean running rivers and we will see healthy populations of mantapa (plains turkey) roaming the open grassy flats.

We will create business opportunities that shows off the natural beauty of our country, the richness of our culture as well as looking at small enterprises that utilizes some of our raw materials.

To achieve this dream

  • We will have happy, healthy, and educated Traditional Owners
  • We will demonstrate our respect for country
  • Southern Kaantju people will re-learn and speak Southern Kaantju language fluently
  • We will have employment opportunities that supports a variety of career paths
  • We will be passing on cultural knowledge and keep our customs and traditions
  • We will have good access to all of our country
  • We will have infrastructure that supports our people to live on country in proper living conditions
