A parliamentary probe to examine allegations of poor administration and governance issues in South Australian Aboriginal corporations has brought a mixed response from First Nations Peoples across the state.
South Australian Premier Steven Marshall met with the Aboriginal Reform SA group last November, where members aired their concerns that the native title system was susceptible to corruption and communities were suffering as a result
Mr Marshall later announced he would back an inquiry into what Aboriginal reform advocates are calling " a broken system".
Mark Koolmatrie, chairman of the Tribal Owners of Southern South Australia is a part of a group of senior First Nations men and women who are calling for a wide-ranging royal commission into Indigenous corporations and statutory bodies.
Adnyamathanha Common Law Holders group spokesperson Vince Coulthard has rejected the call for a wide ranging royal commission.
South Australia’s Adnyamathanha people say they are sick and tired of attacks by the Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations, ORIC,the press and on social media after its Prescribed Body Corporate (PBC) for Native Title was placed under Special Administration.
