" Indigenous Peoples have the right to their traditional medicines and to maintain their health practices, including the conservation of their vital medicinal plants, animals and minerals"
United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, article 24.1
The recognition of Indigenous Peoples' right to their traditional medicine under international human rights law provides the foundation on which the Aṉangu Ngangkaṟi Tjutaku Aboriginal Corporation (ANTAC) is established.
Our Vision is to support the maintenance and practice of the 60,000 year-old Aboriginal traditional medical knowledge system in the XXI century.
Our Mission is to create a platform for the recognition of Aboriginal traditional medicine and Aboriginal traditional healers as legitimate traditional health care practitioners. We operate as a not-for-profit social enterprise to achieve the following goals:
Create a sustainable employment pathway for Aboriginal traditional healers in today's clinical settings;
Provide a Ngangkaṟi service delivery model accessible to everyone in need across Australia and overseas;
Create an evidence-based documentation on Ngangkaṟi interventions in the area of physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual health & well-being.
