Banjima Native Title Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC (BNTAC) was incorporated in 2013 and is the Registered Native Title Body Corporate for the Banjima People.
As the Banjima Prescribed Body Corporate (PBC), our key responsibilities include the protection and maintenance of Banjima People’s native title rights and interests, ensuring good governance practices are maintained and that traditional decision making and Banjima Lore and Culture are at the core of our organisation. Banjima Country Management (our on-country team) leads and manages the Banjima Yurlubajagu Strategic Plan — Banjima's vision for country and culture — through work done by our Tom Price-based Banjima Rangers.
BNTAC also undertakes some Executive Office function under a Benefits Management Structure (BMS). Under this structure, BNTAC works closely with Banjima's decision-making bodies to deliver targeted programs that support Banjima culture, build the capacity of Banjima People and promote strong and healthy families.
The Banjima People received a determination of Native Title on 12 March 2014.
The Banjima People are healthy, secure and independent with diverse life choices and the ability to determine their own future. The foundation is a proud identity centred on strong culture, community unity and effective governance.
Banjima’s strategic priorities encompass three core areas of creating strong and healthy families, the maintenance of strong culture and connection to country for future generations and ensuring Banjima People have a strong voice and access to opportunities that provide them with the capacity to shape and lead their own destinies.
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 utilising these strengths to provide long-term, sustainable social, economic and cultural benefits for their people now and into the future.
