The culture section conducts heritage surveys, which involve Yindjibarndi people and Elders working with companies that want to operate on Yindjibarndi land. Our staff go out on country to identify and record cultural sites, information that is given to companies to help make better plans that minimise damage to important sites.
This work provides employment opportunities for Yindjibarndi people and increases knowledge of our country.
The Culture section also works to document the stories of our elders, collecting video interviews, mapping locations and collecting information about culturally significant objects and places.
The section called Culture is managed by Phil Davies, who has worked with YAC for many years.
