Make a comment or post any questions you may have about our enterprise at the Yalanji Mataka forum at this link: http://www.isx.org.au/forums/list.php?84 We look forward to your input! ---------------------------------------------- Yalanji Mataka/ 2011 Statement of Investment Needs Warehouse/Garage in Mossman with caretakers accommodation The warehouse garage needs to be on about an acre of land or more, and needs to have covered area for dismantling vehicles and storing spare parts.

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.

YJMAC was incorporated in 2004 and has since recorded previously undocumented traditional bio-cultural knowledge such as stories, hunting, gathering, ceremonial practices, art, use of bush foods and medicine, language, ethics, clan boundaries, sacred sites, family histories and land management practices.

During this project Elders, who have now passed on, shared knowledge which would otherwise been lost to future EKY generations.

I am trying to begin my first hairdressing salon in a local suburb. I began hairdressing as a school based apprentice and was provided with great opportunities and i would love to do the same for other teenagers like my self. This is the begining of a much bigger dream. In the future i hope to go back to college to gain qualifications to open a training orginisation, to give back to young teenagers the same opportunities i was given and to make gaining a trade as fun and easy as possible.

The overall objective of the Youth Forum will be to provide a safe youth friendly environment where young people, from across Gove Peninsula and associated homelands, can feel supported and enabled to participate in activities which will assist in developing their leadership and motivation levels. In addition the Forum will connect young people together in order to develop resilience and a sense of community through developing a better understanding of cultural difference.

Gary has been working with the Chewyings for the past 8 years. He is now working independently whilst maintaining the support of the Chewyings methodology. Gary is keen to further develop his own business doing ride on and push mowing work. Work would be tailored to Gary's abilities. Gary now has the ability to move away from the welfare world. The objective is to provide him with enough work to do so. We are hoping the Shoalhaven or other organisations across Australia could support this project Chewying's has undertaken.
