Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa (KJ) is a Martu organisation that was established in 2005 to work with Martu to build strong, sustainable communities. KJ is focused on three complementary objectives to:
support Martu to look after culture and country
build a viable economy in Martu communities; and
build pathways for young Martu to a healthy future.
KJ’s programs assist Martu to engage with their country, share and learn cultural knowledge, and learn about the mainstream world. These on-country programs have generated transformative change across Martu communities, with a wide range of social, economic and cultural outcomes.
How we work
KJ has worked for over a decade with Martu, and recognise that in this cross-cultural interface, Martu have their specific skills and knowledge, while non-Martu have different skills and knowledge. Working closely together blends and uses both sets of competencies to produce the best results.
Board and governance
KJ’s Board has 12 Martu directors and three advisory directors. KJ has put in place a number of tools and measures to ensure good governance, and simultaneously, to give Martu the capacity to take more effective control of the management of the organisation.
Work with us
At KJ, we have a real passion for what we do. Whether working in finance, admin or land management, you’ll be part of a team who considers their work to be so much more than just a job.
