Karlka Developments is a 100% Aboriginal-owned company. It is the business arm of Karlka Nyiyaparli Aboriginal Corporation and it is also holding company to a few other subsidiary companies, such as FenceWright, Karlka Facilities Management Pty. Ltd. and Karlka Workforce Pty. Ltd. (KGR).
Karlka Developments was created in 2012 with the purpose of generating reliable income for the future generations of Nyiyaparli people, away from the mining royalties and the group’s current sources of income.
Occupation of Nyiyaparli land by its traditional owners can be verified to at least 41,000 years, being the second oldest on record in Australia.
The Nyiyaparli People are the Traditional Owners of approximately 36,684 square kilometres of land and waters in the east Pilbara region, including the township of Newman, Western Australia.
The Nyiyaparli symbol reflects the leadership and strength of Nyiyaparli people in commerce, connection and cultural values held over 40,000 years.
