Ideas on Aboriginal land sought
A workshop to explore ways of managing local Aboriginal land and to look into entrepreneurial opportunities in the future will be held at Lismore City Hall next Tuesday, March 25, from 5.30pm-8.30pm.
The Ngulingah Local Aboriginal Land Council (NLALC), a major custodian of Aboriginal land including the iconic Nimbin Rocks and farms and commercial premises, is hosting the Land Visioning workshop and inviting Aboriginal members and all stakeholders to attend.
The workshop will be convened by project supervisor Dr Keith Bolton who said a lot of ideas had already emerged, including a cultural and tourist centre, education and training facilities, and housing.
The need for cultural preservation and land management projects appears to be a strong theme.
Tracey King, Aboriginal Community Support Officer, said the workshop would set goals for the future direction of NLAL.
