Nyamba Buru Yawuru
Representing the Yawuru people, the traditional owners of the country around Broome, Nyamba Buru Yawuru (NBY) is committed to a vision of mabu liyan, mabu buru, mabu ngarrangunil – Good liyan, (well-being), healthy country, strong community. As an objective of their Cultural Management Plan, NBY started Mangara (which means forever) as their living archive in 2014. Using the Storylines database, they began to build their collection, train emerging curators and share their story through exhibitions and other interpretative methods such as apps, walking trails, books, tours, signage and public art. NBY has also set up the Yawuru Nan-ga (language) and Nurlu (song and dance) programs to rekindle their cultural traditions. They also work in creative partnerships with organisations such as the WA Museum, producing the award-winning outcomes such as Lustre: Pearling & Australia travelling exhibition.
