Djarindjin Community people were once part of the Lombadina Catholic Mission, during the 1980’s the Federal Government instigated the homeland movement, and the old people that were living on the sand dunes and around the mission decided they wanted to have their own community.
Djarindjin Aboriginal Corporation commenced in 1985, and the community of Djarindjin started.
Our mission is to create a sustainable future for our community, one that allows us all to take care of our country and to thrive as a community.
We are one clan with many connections. We are the voice of our community. We undertake our mission understanding that everything we do is done with respect for each other, an acknowledgement of our past and a determination to make our own future.
Be financially sustainable, have a clear plan for the future that will enable our next generations to be empowered with self-determination.
We are one clan with many connections… Everything we do is done with respect for each other, an acknowledgement of our past and a determination to make our own future.
