Based in Newman, Western Australia, Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa (KJ) was established to help the Martu people look after their culture and heritage and ensure Martu’s connection with Country remains strong. KJ works to protect the health and wellbeing of the land under the Martu native title determination, which spans three deserts and 13.6 million hectares. Initiatives operated by KJ include an extensive ranger program running in five communities, a leadership program, a return to Country program and cultural knowledge management.
