For the record – copy of Central Land Council letter re audio tapes

clc audio tape let bwAs part of my recent trip to the Northern Territory I took to opportunity to place some audio tapes into the care of the Central Land Council.

I made these field recordings in the early 1980s with senior Warumungu and Alyawarra men when I was engaged/employed by the Central Land Council to assist these men prepare and present their ‘traditional Aboriginal land claim’ (as defined by the Aboriginal Land Rights (NT) Act 1976).

As these tapes were getting old, they needed to be properly cared for if they might be useful for the families of those men. The CLC undertook to digitalise the tapes, as well as to agree to some other conditions regarding potential future use.
