Walalakoo Aboriginal Corporationis positioning itself as the key political, social and economic body representing the Nyikina Mangala people of the Kimberley region in Western Australia. Based in Derby, Walalakoo Aboriginal Corporation was established following the Nyikina Mangala Native Title Determination on the 29th May, 2014. It oversees approximately 26, 215 square kilometres of exclusive and non-exclusive possession native title.
There are a number of existing interests on our country, including mining and pastoral interests. We’re interested in involvement, both as a way to create economic opportunities for Nyikina Mangala people and also as a way to ensure our country and our cultural heritage are protected. Additionally, we’re excited to be driving Indigenous-owned economic development and creating sustainable opportunities for our people.
Our vision is to be a self-sufficient organisation that adopts the world's best practice in environmental and agricultural sustainability and provides social and material prosperity to Nyikina Mangala communities. We aim to preserve culture, provide Indigenous employment opportunities and to operate as an influential organisation with strong internal and external communication channels.
