Kim Hames Kim Hames Chair

I have always had an interest and empathy for the plight of Indigenous Australians, further enhancing my knowledge while serving in the position of Minister for Indigenous Affairs in the Western Australian Parliament. As a General Practitioner in various practices from 1980, I was also involved in Aboriginal heritage medicine and established a consultancy group which provided Aboriginal heritage management services to Government and the private sector.

I am a Nyoongar man from Wagyl Kaip, the South West region of Western Australia. I am the Principal of Extent Legal a boutique legal practice based in Perth, advising on energy, resources and regulatory matters. My experience in indigenous affairs and engagement has given me a comprehensive understanding of native title and Aboriginal heritage matters.

Garry Smith Garry Smith Director

After graduating from Teachers College, I taught for three years at Lake Grace and later at Wangkatjungka Remote Community School, south of Fitzroy Crossing. Thus began a life-long love of the Kimberley region. The successful achievement by Indigenous students that I have witnessed throughout my 35 year teaching career, has invariably occurred due to strong support from family, teachers and mentors.

As an experienced Non-executive Director, I currently sit on the Board of Stellar Housing Limited and Wintawari Guruma Aboriginal Corporation. I am also the Company Secretary for an ASX listed coal mining company.

I started my career as a professional footballer and then went on to study law. As a lawyer I took on the role of Executive Director of the Yamatji Land and Sea Council native title body and later became Chairperson of the Western Australian Aboriginal Lands Trust. I am now a full time business executive who works for and advisers Aboriginal groups and mining companies.

Phil Paul Phil Paul CEO & Director

I am a strong supporter of ‘Closing the Gap’ initiatives, and am focused on achieving positive results in this area. I worked briefly as a manager with Telstra before becoming the Indigenous Engagement Manager at Brierty Limited. I helped developed trusting relationships with indigenous communities in WA and the NT and formed partnerships with like-minded organisations seeking to assist indigenous people back into the workforce.

Ningali Lawford-Wolf Ningali Lawford-Wolf Ambassador

Ningali Lawford-Wolf was born on Christmas Creek, a cattle station at Wangkatjungka, in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia.

Ningali schooled at Christmas Creek Primary, then moved on to Derby for senior school and then again to Perth for year 11 and 12.

After schooling in Perth and receiving the opportunity to an exchange program in Alaska, Ningali moved home to Fitzroy Crossing, where she worked jobs in various local businesses.

Ningali eventually went on to study Dance at Sydney’s Aboriginal Islander Dance Theatre (AIDT) where her journey toward theatre and film began.

A prominent figure in the Kimberley, Ningali fosters important relationships with family and community and now has settled in Broome as a mentor for Indigenous students in upper high school.
