A key Central Australian Indigenous education and training organisation may have to close its doors because of cuts to essential funding under the Federal Government’s Indigenous Advancement strategy, writes its CEO.

But a former manager says a new Federal scheme gives hope for improvements in the training of young Aborigines. ERWIN CHLANDA reports. PHOTO: The cafe in its heyday.
