The largest Aboriginal Corporation in Australia has thrown their support behind an Indigenous Voice to Parliament so they can work with the main players, not the middle men.
The Arnhem Land Progress Aboriginal Corporation or ALPA operates in 27 remote locations across the Northern Territory and Queensland.
While ALPA acknowledges that more needs to be known about the structure of the Voice, its board is optimistic that it’ll lead to better outcomes for Indigenous communities.
ALPA’s newly appointed Chairperson, Micky Wunungmurra says it’s time Indigenous communities were heard at the top level of government.
Mr Wunungmurra was recently appointed Chair of the organisation following Reverend Dr Djiniyini Gondarra’s retirement after 30 years in the role.
Speaking to NIRS News, Mr Wunungmurra began by talking about the task ahead.
