What is Aarnja working on?
Aarnja is working closely with Aboriginal leaders, communities and organisations on the State Government’s recently released Regional Services Reform project. Aarnja believes there is an opportunity to unite Kimberley Aboriginal people and put them in the driving seat for real positive change in our remote communities. Aarnja has recently taken on the role of leading the Empowered Communities model in the west and central Kimberley and is working closely with the Wunan Foundation which is working in the east Kimberley. Empowered Communities is a proposal for reform of the relationship between governments and Aboriginal communities. Kimberley Aboriginal people have been talking about a model for regional governance for a long time, and Aarnja is working with people and organisations across the Kimberley to make it happen.
