We encourage everyone to spend some time researching the cultural significance and history of Newman, and to actively seek opportunities to build your cultural understanding. See below for some great resources to get you started.

5. Share your journey

Share stories of how your business is getting involved with This Is Our Dream by using the hashtag #ThisIsOurDream on social media.

6. Spread the word

Tell others about the Cultural Compact, why you're on this journey and how they can get onboard.

The This Is Our Dream Cultural Compact acknowledges the Nyiyaparli Traditional Owners of the Country on which Newman stands and the Martu People as the Custodians of Jigalong which sits in Nyiyaparli Country. We respect and recognise their leaders, past, present and emerging, and we are grateful for the privilege of living and working on this Country.
