We are the first people of our lands. We have lived here across northern Arnhem Land from the beginning.

 

We are many small clans living in our own lands and speaking many different languages.

 

In the seventies the Australian Government built Ramingining township. They built houses, a store, a school and a clinic for some of us Yolngu.

 

There are maybe 800 or 1000 people now living in Ramingining township. Other clans are living on the outstations, maybe 400 or 500 hundred people live on the outstations.

 

Ramingining is in north-east Arnham Land, Northern Territory, Australia. In the dry season, it is one day's driving from Darwin. In the wet, you can get here by small aeroplane. All year round, food and supplies come on the barge.
