Vision of the old people for the Yolngu of the homelands:

“To determine our own future, to manage our own affairs, to become self sufficient so that the homeland mala (clans) can continue to live in peace and harmony.”


The Yolngu leaders gave Laynhapuy Homelands Aboriginal Corporation the responsibility for implementing this vision.



Our mission

Our mission is to support the Yolngu members of the Laynhapuy homeland communities serviced by the Corporation through programs that deliver:

  • Maintenance and protection of country and culture
  • Employment, training and economic development opportunities
  • Good standard of communication and infrastructure in homelands
  • Good health, social welfare, community development and educational outcomes

In the words of Chairman Barayuwa Mununggurr:

“For Yolngu, the homelands are our flesh and our bones, the homes of our ancestor and where we will be laid to rest. Our homelands are a part of us, as we are a part of the homelands.”
