Wagyl Kaip and Southern Noongar
SWALSC is holding six Community Information Forums about the progress of the South West Native Title Settlement since the Authorisation Meetings held in early 2015. The Forums will provide the Noongar community with the opportunity to ask questions about where we have been, and where we are going. The Forums are not Claim Group Meetings, so any Noongar person who lives nearby is welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be provided.
Albany Forum, 14 October 2017, 10:30am-12:30pm, Motel Le Grande.
This page contains content specifically for the Wagyl Kaip and Southern Noongar region. It includes:
- Information about community meetings and relevant handouts; and
- Formal documents.
Noongar people are eligible to be involved if they are a descendant of one or more of the Apical Ancestors that were included in either the Native Title Claim Group descriptions (Form 1) or the Native Title Agreement Group descriptions.
