Historic Agreement North Stradbroke Island Historical Museum

Posted on: 21 June 2012

After several years building a partnership, the Walker family and the Museum formally signed the Oodgeroo of the Tribe Noonuccal Custodian of the Land Minjerribah Collection Management Deed. Mayor Karen Williams was witness to signing the historic Management Deed.

The Deed provides for the Museum to house and assist with the preservation of the collection, but allows for the material to remain in the Walker family’s ownership and control. Of particular note are the Management Principles that guide the relationship, which include a recognition of sovereignty, equity, respect and trust.

Before the Deed was signed, the Museum Committee, staff and members participated in a Cultural Heritage Education Program (CHEP) with the Walker family. (Announced today in the newsletter of  North Stradbroke Island Historical Museum).
