Thamarrurr Regional Council’s vision for its governance, Wadeye, NT.
“This symbol shows how we are moving to have strong, representative government. The symbol is about Thamarrurr – the traditional government of our ancestors and the building blocks of the future. Our new Thamarrurr Council is built on these foundations:
– 20 clans
– 2 representatives from each clan
– every clan is equal
Today, we are beginning to regain control of our lives. We want to be regarded and treated as able-bodied citizens of Australia.”
