First Nations Knowledge

First Nations Rangers to the Fore

First Nations Rangers delivering Natural Resource Management (NRM) activities represent the future of Landcare, reconnecting culture and Country, and gaining the qualifications to become long-term practitioners.

In collaboration with key partners and the support of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, NACC NRM’s Mid West Aboriginal Ranger Program was launched in September 2017. As this presentation will explore, the program enables a diversity of ranger teams across the region, working with numerous Traditional Owner Groups and regional stakeholders to deliver Landcare Services, Heritage Site maintenance, and developing Aboriginal business opportunity. In so doing, it provides opportunities for Aboriginal people across the Mid West region to engage in NRM activities while delivering on-ground conservation with a strong cultural emphasis on Caring for Country.

This presentation highlights how a partnership approach supports members from diverse communities to participate in Ranger teams, and by working cross regionally, the ambition and priorities of many Traditional Owner groups can be addressed. It will highlight the value of Rangers on Country, how they can support broader Landcare initiatives and the rapidly advancing amalgamation of Traditional and Western knowledge emerging in this sector.
