How Yawuru cultural values and practices inform their governance
Nyamba Buru Yawuru (NBY) is a not-for-profit company owned by the Yawuru Native Title holders through a corporate group structure. The company was the Category A Winner in the 2018 Indigenous Governance Awards. In this video, Peter Yu, CEO and Nini Mills, Community Development Manager, explain how Yawuru cultural values and practices are embodied in the philosophy ‘mabu liyan’ (good spirit). They talk about how this serves as a cultural base that informs what they do, how they do it, and how it informs their governance.
