To ensure traditional decision-making and Banjima Lore and Culture are always at the core of our organisation, BNTAC and our Banjima Board of Directors regularly engage with the Banjima Community, its councils and committees, and the Banjima Elders Council.
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 law and culture are at the core of our organisation.
