Elders back in charge at Lhere Artepe: Re-confirmed chairman

The town's native title organisation has brought back "the decision making and administration to a focus on our elders, our language and our culture,” says Lhere Artepe's Ian McAdam (pictured).

A recent meeting re-confirmed him as the chairperson of the corporation made up of "three Native Title groups who are custodians of the lands in and around Alice Springs".

Putting an end to years of turmoil Mr McAdam says: "Many of our elders were present and we are confident that we can return the Corporation to a respectable arrangement for the future operation and planning of the Corporation.

"We also have a backlog of requests for discussions with the Board by Government and members of the public and I thank those who have been patient with us.

"I am making this statement to the media to convey that we will move forward steadily and with a commitment to be the Corporation which gives respect and priority to our elders and the native title members who are today standing proud now that they have regained control of an organisation that was hard won by many of our elders who are no longer with us.

"They taught us that we have responsibilities to all of our people including our youth."

The board members, from the three estate groups, are:-

Antulye: Ian McAdam, Willy Satour, Felicity Hayes and Janice Harris (who is also the new director).
Irlpme: Noel Kruger (Deputy Chair), Kathy Martin, Bonita  Kopp and Raymond Peters.
Mparntwe: Michael Liddle, Tessa Campbell, Carolyn Liddle and Ian Conway.
