Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park and Kakadu National Park are among three national parks in Australia that are jointly managed by the federal government and Traditional Owners (TOs). In a report commissioned by federal Environment Minister Sussan Ley, Parks Australia has been slammed for their lack of trust with TOs. The report said current governance was complex but relied on strong relationships between both parties, which had deteriorated. This relationship must not only be rebuilt but must move forward in line with the significant ad vance in recognition of the cultural importance and rights of Indigenous people, the report states. TOs must be confident there is a real respect for culture and customs, ownership of land and the important part Traditional Owners play in the care and management of the parks as national cultural icons. The report said problems were further compounded by the governments plethora of unfilled commitments in leasing and management. The lack of access to employment was particularly contentious. For Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation (GAC), who represent the Mirarr Traditional Owners of Kakadu National Park, the report was a welcomed relief. The report goes into some detail about the lack of trust between Traditional Owners and the parks authority, however in our view it doesnt go far enough, said GAC chief executive Justin OBrien. There is an extra $48m for the three parks, along with commitments from government (for change), so they have clearly been listening. However, Mr OBrien said the old board of management created in the 1990s needed to be overhauled. Environment Minister Sussan Ley said the $48m would include $10.6m to reform employment frameworks in consultation with TOs. I will work through the recommendations with the Traditional Owners and Parks Australia but have already asked Parks Australia to implement further measures.
