(Welcome to Yorta Yorta Country)

The Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation (YYNAC) is comprised of peoples with undeniable bloodlines to the Original Ancestors of the Land of the Yorta Yorta Nation. These bloodlines link Yorta Yorta peoples' past, present and future to one another, with traditional laws, customs, beliefs and sovereignty intact. 

YYNAC was established, amongst other objectives, to represent the members of the Family Groups who are descendants of the Original Ancestors of the Yorta Yorta Peoples; to make decisions and act on any matters of significance to the Yorta Yorta Peoples; and to enter into agreements with any person, Government agency or authority in relation to the protection of Yorta Yorta Country. 

YYNAC is governed by a board of seven (7) Directors with one of those Directors being an Elder's Representative and the Council of Elders comprised of 16 Yorta Yorta Family Group Representatives. The Chief Executive Officer manages the day-to-day operations of the organisation, cultural heritage officers, researchers and administrative personnel. 
Yorta map
This is a map of the Native Title Land that was claimed in Traditional Yorta Yorta Territory.

Traditional Yorta Yorta lands lie on both sides of the Murray River roughly from Cohuna to Albury / Wodonga. They include towns such as Echuca, Shepparton, Benalla, Corowa and Wangaratta and extend northwards to just south of Deniliquin.

This map was part of the claim which sought confirmation of the continuation of native title over forests and other public lands along the Murray and Goulburn Rivers. Yorta Yorta Traditional tribal lands, covers some 20,000 square kilometers.
