Our Team

Set-up as a Native Title Representative Body under the Native Title Act 1993, we’re a passionate and dedicated group of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians committed to helping the Traditional Owners of Cape York achieve recognition for their country.

Reporting to our Board of Directors, CEO Peter Callaghan leads a team focused around two specialist units: Native Title Unit and Community Relations. Supporting this work is the administrative and financial arm of the organisation.
