Darwin Harbour
Integrated Report Card

Indigenous Values

Indigenous values were identified through Indigenous stakeholder consultation as being a key value for a healthy Darwin Harbour. Indigenous values were assessed using three indicators – food security, future generations, and spiritual and sacred sites. Information for each of these indicators was collected through a survey of 50 Indigenous representatives living within the Darwin Harbour catchment.

Information on the indicators used to assess this value can be found below:

Recommendations

Work with the Indigenous community to address threats to Indigenous food security, improve two-way consultation (listen more and speak less), address shortages in job availability, and invest in respecting and protecting spiritual and sacred sites.
