Kado breaks down WA’s draft cultural heritage bill

NNTC Deputy Chair and Ngalia Traditional Owner Kado Muir explains why WA’s proposed new Indigenous cultural heritage legislation falls short. Under the proposed new bill, mining companies still won’t need the consent of Traditional Owners to destroy their cultural heritage, even if the heritage is of ‘state significance’. Ultimate decision-making power still sits with the minister.

The NNTC is calling on the WA Government not to table this bill in its current form but to work with Traditional Owners on a redraft and allow enough time for all interested parties to make submissions.
