Yawuru PBC

The Yawuru Prescribed Body Corporate (PBC) is the membership organisation for Yawuru people. It represents the values, ambitions and aims for the Yawuru people and works through its operational company Nyamba Buru Yawuru for the sustainable empowerment of Yawuru culture, country and community.

The fight to establish Yawuru native title was a long process that took considerable energy, time and commitment from many people. The old people who were determined to achieve recognition and rights for their community will always be remembered.

After the Court determination, Yawuru formed the Yawuru Registered Native Title Holders Body Corporate (RNTBC), often referred to as the Yawuru PBC. The PBC’s job is to hold and manage native title for the Yawuru people. ORIC Register: Key documents for the Yawuru PBC.
