Hedland Aboriginal Strong Leaders invited representatives of local business and industry to their end of year meeting on December 10, to present certificates of appreciation for their support of HASL in 2021.

Kariyarra elder and HASL chairman Alfred Barker alongside Ngarluma elder and HASL vice chairwoman Maureen Kelly presented several certificates to Hedland-based representatives from BHP, Compass Group, Pilbara Development Commission, FMG, Telethon Kids Institute, and Hedland’s Youth Involvement Council.

HASL was formed in 2017 to represent Aboriginal language groups from across Port Hedland and the Pilbara and provide a unified voice.

In 2022, HASL is made up of 26 respected elders who are committed to providing an Aboriginal voice for Hedland by working in collaboration with government and agencies to make better and informed decisions for Aboriginal people and the broader community.
