Banjima People are united through their shared cultural identity and language. The Banjima People are unified in their goals to manage and protect their law and culture, native title rights and interests and in ultising these strengths to provide long-term, sustainable social, economic and cultural benefits for their people now and into the future.
What we do

BNTAC is the Registered Native Title Body Corporate for the Banjima People and holds the Native Title Rights and Interest on trust for the Banjima People. The Banjima People received a determination of Native Title on 12 March 2014.
BNTAC’s key responsibilities as the Banjima Prescribed Body Corporate (PBC) include ensuring the protection and maintenance of Banjima People’s native title rights and interests. BNTAC is also responsible for ensuring good governance practices are maintained and that traditional decision making and Banjima Law and Culture are at the core of substantive decision making.
