ASA were honoured to provide the trophies again for this years Indigenous Governance Awards. Congratulations to Waltja Tjutangku Palyapayi Aboriginal Corporation from Alice Springs and The Marruk Project in Swan Hill, who were awarded the best run Aboriginal organisation and project in the country. These trophies symbolise fire, to represent the pioneers of Indigenous governance or “trail blazers”. These Indigenous Organisations are promoting successful and sustainable practices that not only look after our own families, but are also good for all Australians and this deadly country of ours.
