Membership

membership to Larrakia

Larrakia Nation’s membership, currently more than 600 people, consists of descendants of the original inhabitants of the Darwin region, drawn from the eight family groups named in the Kenbi Land Claim:  Batcho, Browne/Talbot/Kenyon, Cubillo, Fejo, McLennan, Raymond/Mills, Roman and Shepherd.

Any Larrakia person is eligible for membership. Larrakia apply for membership by filling in the membership form [I presume we have a table or a link to the form], who are then approved by the board at the monthly board meetings. People under the age of 18 are associate members until they become adults.

Members receive a number of benefits, including:

  • The election of family representatives at the Annual General Meeting
  • Letters of Aboriginality
  • Advocacy on your behalf
  • Assistance with vehicles and seating for funerals
  • Assistance with money for travel to sporting carnivals
  • Booking the Larrakia community centre for events and meetings
  • Access to Larrakia Nation records and archives
  • Free tickets to events

As Larrakia Nation is a charity that does not receive royalty payments, our ability to assist with financial hardship is limited.

Larrakia Nation’s membership, currently more than 600 people, consists of descendants of the original inhabitants of the Darwin region, drawn from the eight main families:

  • Batcho family
  • Browne/Talbot family
  • Cubillo family
  • McLennan family
  • Raymond/Mills family
  • Roman family
  • Shepherd family

These eight families are represented on the organisation’s logo by eight spears, together with the major totem for the Larrakia people, dangalaba (Crocodile).
