The Martuwarra Fitzroy River Council is an alliance of Elders from independent nations of the Fitzroy River Catchment in the Kimberley, Western Australia. We are an entirely Indigenous led organisation.

As the oldest living culture in the world, our First Law and Science has been handed down through countless millennium. The world must enact the ancient wisdom of our Elders if we are to see a sustainable future for all.

Martuwarra is under threat of unsustainable development. It is one of Earth’s last great River systems and we must ensure it remains intact for all future generations to enjoy.
