We want to create agriculture, forestry and fishing businesses that are Indigenous from top to bottom. We want to see more Indigenous Traineeships for young local indigenous residents.


Creating Better Understanding of Traditional Places and Housing Needs

In every town with a significant Aboriginal population there are places where the community congregates to talk and to pass on their respects.

Bringing George and Lily Home

It's been over two years since George and Lily Fishers' historic Daintree home burned down. The Mossman community have rallied to the cause raising over $14,000 for a building fund to rebuild their home.

The ISX has long had the view that home ownership is a vital part of the 'closing the gap' project for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. But in the Fishers' case it is about having the comfort of spending the years ahead in their own house on their own land.
