Brian Tucker, Director of Karlayura Group
Brian is a traditional owner on Banyjima and Nyiyaparli country. Over his lifetime, he has witnessed the exodus of his people from their lands in search of employment, and recognised the impact this has had on their connection with culture and the land.
He established Karlayura in 2011 with the aim of giving local Aboriginal people another option. He worked with construction and mining companies to provide local employment opportunities for Aboriginal people; creating a model that would bring them back to country and provide them with the skills and opportunities they would need to stay on the land and reconnect with their culture.
Brian has been involved with numerous community, heritage and environmental programs for the past 30 years, and he currently sits on heritage boards with Australia’s largest mining companies.
Partnerships and Community
As part of our growth and development strategy, the Karlayura Group partners with other Aboriginal businesses to share capabilities and strengthen the Indigenous business sector. We also work with and support many local community organisations and grassroots projects each year.
