Fulton Hogan Partnership - Signing of Kungun Ngarrindjeri Yunnan Agreement
June 21, 2016
Today an the Ngarrindjeri Regional Authority signed the first Kungun Ngarrindjeri Yunnan Agreement (KNYA) (‘Listening to Ngarrindjeri People Talking’) with a corporate partner - Fulton Hogan. This signing is a recognition and formalisation of the ongoing partnership between Fulton Hogan and the Ngarrindjeri Regional Authority, to achieving the aspirations of the Ngarrindjeri people.
History of the KNYA
KNYA is a Ngarrindjeri Elders and Leaders initiative that came after the events of the Kumarangk (Hindmarsh Island) Royal Commission. Ngarrindjeri wanted to build a new relationship with government based on respect and recognition of Ngarrindjeri as the Traditional Owners of their country. The KNYA was also a key initiative to further progress the aspirations of the Ngarrindjeri as documented in the Ngarrindjeri Yarluwar-Ruwe Plan. It also builds upon the objectives and intent of the Ngarrindjeri Regional Partnership Agreement, 2008, between the NRA, South Australian and Australian Governments.
