As our readers might be aware, Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation (MAC) did not present any submissions nor testified at the Federal Senate inquiry in February this year.

This Pilbara Aboriginal corporation is made up by five groups, the Ngarluma people, the Mardudhunera people, the Yaburara people, the Yindjibarndi people and the Wong-goo-tt-oo people. Irrespective of the reason for which they did not make a submission a few months ago, we are pleased that their point of view will now be presented to the committee.

WA Greens senator Rachel Siewert declared “(It will be of benefit to the committee) hearing from the custodians of the area, particularly talking about how they feel about the knowledge centre, how they feel about the protection of the petroglyphs and any potential impact on the petroglyphs from the various sources of pollution up there.”
