About Our Corporation

Jungarni-Jutiya Indigenous Corporation has been a central part of the Halls Creek community since 1989, supporting families to achieve safer and healthier lives. The organisation has evolved and grown since its early beginnings and now delivers a range of community welfare, life skills and education programs, directed towards helping people change their behaviour and to minimise harm.

The traditional owners of the surrounding land are the Jaru and Kija people. The name “Jungarni-Jutiya” means “straight path” in the Jaru native language.
