Aboriginal People live according to Cultural Values. These values are complex and underpin individuals’ ways of being and doing. Council’s values are firmly embedded in our Cultural Heritage, Traditions, history and communities.
These values underpin the policies and guidelines that Council develops to guide both its work and the work of all in the community supporting Traditional Owners. Council has a responsibility under the Act to publish these policies and guidelines.
