“Keeping Our Water Spirits and Our Connections Alive”
Northern Basin Aboriginal Nations Ltd (NBAN) is a not-for-profit company and peak body that represents, advocates for and empowers First Nations in water management, in the northern Murray-Darling Basin.
Since 2009, through the cultural authority of its member Nations, NBAN has been providing strategic advice on First Nations’ water rights and interests, and delivering and partnering on projects, at a state and federal level, that fulfil its First Nations’ vision of “Keeping our water spirits and our connections alive”. NBAN is dedicated to improving its Nations’ spiritual, cultural, environmental, social and economic conditions.
NBAN acknowledges all of the First Nations of the Australian continent, particularly the First Nations of the northern and southern Murray-Darling Basin, and asserts that these Nations have never acquiesced or ceded their sovereignty over their ancestral lands and waters. We pay our respects to First Nation Elders past, present and emerging.
