We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land throughout the Murchison GeoRegion – the Yamatji people. This includes the Badimia, Wajarri, Yugunga-Nya and Martu people. We recognise their continuing connection to the land, skies, waters and culture, and pay our respects to them and to Elders past, present and emerging.
