Ngarrindjeri nation has come a long way in 10 years to activate regional governance arrangements and work with government partners to develop new ways of working together. Founded because of trust and respect for culture and a willingness to embed a set of principles that would enable equity at the decision-making table with government partners for Ngarrindjeri. We have an opportunity to show how necessary Indigenous Empowerment is to effectively overcome the economic, social, and cultural barriers we face. We have the ownership to identify our priorities! The Ngarrindjeri Nation will have significant influence in the direction and use of our allocated Commonwealth Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS)

The missing link for Ngarrindjeri nation building- we did not have our agreements locked in with legislation to secure our partnerships with government and hold them to account to stay committed and at the table with us.
