Summary
"The Tiwi Islands is 60 kms across the Arafura Sea north of Darwin. Bathurst and Melville Island and five smaller islands total 800,000 hectares and include a coastline of 1016 kms held under free-hold title by our 2000 landowners. The Land Council communicates and facilitates opportunity but is not a commercial participant. We encourage our vibrant Art Centres and their expanding national and international profile. We passionately support our eight football teams and their inspirational elite Tiwi Bombers NTFL squad. We have founded our Tiwi Islands Training and Employment Board now established with training centres in our three major communities, all with individual work and training profiles across the entire workforce. We have planned and continue to assist our Tiwi Education Board in establishing our Tiwi College boarding school currently with 66 students living in ?family group homes? at the Pickataramoor campus on Melville Island. Our people demand their own participation in the management and development of their own resources upon their own land. Five representatives from each of the eight land groups provide a total of 40 Land Council members. Representation at 1:50 assures opinions and decisions reflect those of our landowners, a democratic difficulty for most representative bodies who struggle for more than 1 per thousand or more. Our Land Council is our landowning families at work for their benefit and their security upon their land."-- Taken from Home
