The logo of the Corporation was inspired by the stunning honey ant paintings of one of our Badimia artists, Ms Noeleen Brockman.
Bandi Barna means Honey Ant in Badimia, which are a traditional food eaten by Aboriginal people. Bandi Barna lives down under the ground in the roots of the Mulga trees.
What's The Plan?
The Badimia Bandi Barna Aboriginal Corporation is very proud to announce the launch of its Strategic Plan, and the Badimia Barna Healthy Country Plan. These documents will be key in guiding the work of the Corporation, by breaking down the many complex areas of working with barna (country) and helping plan what we need to do and how we are going to do it from the perspective of actions and integrity. The Plans will support keeping work on track, by monitoring the progress the Corporation makes towards reaching goals and targets.
The Badimia Bandi Barna Aboriginal Corporation acknowledges the contribution of the Working Group who dedicated their knowledge and time towards supporting the intensive design and development of the Plans, and the support of our funding partners to allow the creation of these important documents to occur.
