"This is letting you know so you will learn from us. Learn from these words like we have learnt from you. Your knowledge, your education, your background, we are using it. Some of the law and some of the culture of yours. OK and in the same way you must learn..."<br>

Buymarr homeland is situated approximately 90 kms from the township of Nhulunbuy (Gove) in the North East Arnhem Land region in the Northern Territory. Buymarr, also known as "Buymarrwuy" is a small community that accommodates up to 20 family members. It offers an abundance of wildlife and natural fauna surrounded by the breath-taking coastline and magnificent scenery of Arnhem Land. Buymarr Getaways aims to provide visitors with the following:

* Quiet and private location

* Great fishing experience

Remote Aboriginal communities are often characterised by outrageous levels of alcohol addiction and drunken violence, a large and growing drug problem amongst the youth, poor diets, parental neglect, overcrowded housing, mass idleness and boredom, vandalism, sexual assault and the collapse of formal education. All of which has resulted in abject poverty, loss of dignity, extremely poor physical and mental health, substance abuse, congenital and acquired brain damage, levels of ignorance comparable to Third World victims, and extremely high levels of incarceration and suicide.

Batambil's artworks can be purchased direct from the artist. Also from Buku Larrngay Mulka at Yirrkala and other community-owned arts centre in Arnhem Land.

It is estimated that to develop production facilities to a first phase of development would cost approximately $30,000. This would allow a slab to be poured, a permanent roof to be erected and some other minimum facilities to be established.

CMT Services has developed a strong methodology for Indigenous employment which is summarised in the chart opposite.

CMT Services has conducted numerous surveys within the Nhulunbuy region to gauge interest in the program. There have been encouraging responses and success to date.

Three Nhulunbuy businesses have already participated in the Cultural Connections Program.

Our art centre is located in Roebourne town, also known as Yirramagadu, fifteen hundred kilometres north of Perth. We work together to share our culture and stories through the artwork so that our community and culture stay strong. The paintings reflect our artists individual style, and their unique way of interpreting their stories, culture and the place they live. We create vibrant contemporary paintings that are both beautiful and meaningful.

David Wilson has spent many years studying yabby development. With local Indigenous entrepreneur Peter Moore the pair have exciting plans for franchisees to develop a first class yabby farming network.

The Briez Turbine is a project being promoted and developed by Peter Moore an Indigenous entrepreneur based in Nowra, NSW. Peter is keen to talk to anyone interested in purchasing the product.

I am twenty three years old. When I was born my mum Debra Dickerson was only sixteen years old. My Dad split up with her soon after I was born. I am the oldest of five children.
It was hard for my Mum to look after us. I went to live with my Nana and Pop when I was about six.
When I was nine I first got into trouble with the police. I was stealing and I went to juvenile prison and adult prison from that time on. It was a cycle of trouble that just seemed to follow me everywhere.

For many years there has been talk of the need for an informal meeting place for national Indigenous leaders, that is open to all senior Indigenous leaders, with no fixed agenda.
Often Indigenous leaders come together in a crisis or political context where there is very little time to get to know each other, to share ideas and to define common interests. Indigenous Australia is made up of many nations and communities so there is a great need for a common forum with no formal agenda to bring people together annually, to nurture young leaders and to simply shoot the breeze.
