National Heritage Reforms

First Nations Heritage Protection Alliance

In addition to the significant Aboriginal cultural heritage protection work being undertaken in Western Australia (i.e. at the state-level), there is also critical work being undertaken simultaneously at the national-level through the First Nations Heritage Protection Alliance (FNHPA): an important initiative mandated to strengthen and modernise our national cultural heritage laws and create industry reforms that ensure Indigenous cultural heritage is valued and protected for the future.

FNHPA is comprised of a number of organisations representing First Nations peoples from across Australia, including major Native Title, Land Rights, Traditional Owner, and community-controlled organisations. Together, the FNHPA members aim to build strong partnerships with First Nations peoples and organisations, governments, industry and investor groups, which put First Nations peoples in the driving seat of reform and management of their cultural heritage.
