The Karrkad Kanjdji Trust was established by the Traditional Owners of Warddeken and Djelk Indigenous Protected Areas (IPAs) in 2010. The name they gave us, Karrkad Kanjdji (pronounced gar-gut gun-jee), refers to the stone country highlands and savanna lowlands of Arnhem Land.
Our vision is that current and future generations of Bininj (Indigenous people) and Balanda (non-Indigenous people) can work together to support the sustainability of land management and cultural heritage work, while enabling the ongoing self-determination of the people of West and Central Arnhem Land.
The Karrkad Kanjdji Trust operates independently from locally-based Indigenous organisations. It is led by skilled Indigenous and non-Indigenous Directors. The Directors maintain a strong focus on succession planning.
Karrkad Kanjdji Trust is a lean operation, ensuring maximum value is delivered from funds and invested in projects. We have a very dedicated team who work to fulfil the wishes of community.
