Our Purpose: Wangka Maya Pilbara Aboriginal Language Centre aims to be recognised as a leading Aboriginal language and resource centre in Australia. By working with the old people of the Pilbara, we will use our expertise, knowledge and sensitivity to record and foster Aboriginal languages, culture and history. Thus, ensuring the young people remain strong in retaining their Aboriginal language, culture and history, ensuring cultural continuity. Click Here to View Our Strategic Plan for 2011

The 2008 AGM took place on the 23rd May 2009. A wonderful turnout produced some new directors, including Raylene Gordon, Lesley Woods, Pauline Bunwarrie and Harry Spratt. They have taken their place alongside existing committee members: Bruce Thomas (Chair), Lorraine Injie (Vice-Chair), Harry Taylor (Treasurer), Trudy Hayes (Secretary), Lizzie Dalgliesh (Director) and Ann Sibosado (Director). The 2009 AGM is scheduled to go ahead as usual at the end of the year. Thanks to all those who were able to attend and make it a GREAT meeting. This AGM was made extra special because it was the first one held in the new building and there were one or two family reunions.
