Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara throws its support behind APY Thunder Print E-mail

Skill Hire and its valued partner, the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) are proud to announce that the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Executive council met on June 9, and have thrown their full support and endorsement behind APY Lands Football and the formation of the APY Thunder team.

The Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Executive council have endorsed the program and can see the benefits it will bring to Anangu.

The Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) is incorporated by the 1981 Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Land Rights Act whereby the SA Parliament gave Aboriginal people title to more than 103,000 square kilometres of arid land in the far northwest of South Australia. The main communities on the Lands include: Indulkana, Mimili, Kaltjiti, Pukatja, Amata and Pipalyatjara. There are several homelands as well, the larger ones being Kalka, Kanpi and Nyapari.


The APY Executive Board met yesterday the 29th March 2016.

The APY Executive Board held a minutes silence in respect for ...
Mrs Woodford.

It was noted that the communities across the APY have been devastated by this sad event and are in mourning for the loss of this very special lady.

After some discussion and consideration the executive have decided that the APY and our communities will need time to come to terms with their loss.

The APY Executive has requested that the Community Cabinet that had been scheduled for May 2016 be deferred for a later date to allow the APY communities recover.

APY representatives at an Indigenous Cattlemens Workshop Print E-mail

APY representatives at an Indigenous Cattlemens Workshop held in Katherine on the 25/26 Nov run by the Indigenous Pastoral Programme.

This workshop was run to allow Managers and TO’s from different Indigenous properties throughout SA, WA and the NT to share, learn and  listen to presentations and discuss ways of running successful, profitable, safe and fun cattle enterprises. Some properties are experiencing  very successful outcomes by making the most of training and advise readily available and then be able to make smart decisions moving forward.
