  • Jawoyn is recognised among Aboriginal peoples over a large area of the Northern Territory’s ‘Top End’. It is an all encompassing expression used in reference to language, culture, people and territory. With 17 clans making up the group, The Jawoyn Association forms a positive role model for similar organisations to follow; their business enterprise, human services and forward planning with a vision for economic independence provides employment and training for Jawoyn people, while maintaining a strong affinity to traditional heritage and cultural ideals. Nitmiluk National Park is owned by the Jawoyn people and managed under a 99 year lease by the Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife Commission, in association with Jawoyn people, culture and traditions.
