MATA MATA HOMELAND, NORTHERN TERRITORY, AUSTRALIA – Batumbil Burarrwanga, a Yolngu woman of the Gumatj clan, collects pandanus and manages her land with fire out on her homeland / ancestral land.

Homelands were once supported by the Australian Government's policy with aboriginal communities, however they have slowly pulled funding for these outstations, especially in the recent Intervention government policy. Studies show that those living and spending time out on homelands are far healthier than those living in the overcrowded central towns that the government is more willing to fund. _________________________________
