Sandalwood harvesting in the desert is tough uncompromising work. Clinton manages and operates Kutkububba Aboriginal Corporation’s Indigenous Martu harvesting enterprise. Caring for Country and following in his father’s footsteps is a cultural and commercial obligation to the Martu people. He is also a Director of Dutjahn Sandalwood Oils.
He has never worked for anyone in his whole life, because he is a self-employed sandalwood harvester. His father (first contact – deceased) taught him to care for country with socio-economic and environmental principles.
Darren was the named applicant on the Birrilibulu Native Title claim (MNR). He is the visionary behind Dutjahn Sandalwood Oils (DSO) and is a Director of DSO.
In December 2014 we won a land mark Native Title settlement over sandalwood on our homelands. This has taken our people 25 years. We now ask industry to support our quest to get the West Australian Government to work with us and mediate a settlement that unlocks our natural assets and allows us to lift our people from poverty with dignity.
