The Djelk Ranger program


Michelle Cochrane reports on a research trip in May 2003 to study the Djelk Ranger program operating under the Bawinanga Aboriginal Corporation. The success of the ventures mentioned in this report is built on a unique blend of formal legal institutional mechanisms and customary law and socio-cultural conventions. The opportunities for economic development in Indigenous communities, and some of the challenges that these communities face, are demonstrated in the Djelk Ranger program initiative.
