Acknowledgement of Country
Port Hedland International Airport acknowledge the Kariyarra Aboriginal people as the Traditional owners of the country we work on, and their connection to land, water and community. We pay our respects to all Traditional Owners and Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Welcome from the Kariyarra
Marapikurrinya Kariyarra ngurrara ngarli wanthngalinha mapaji mayili-la

Kulitharta jinaangu ngarnanala kurntanagrni
Wapa kanjaru ngurra ngarnarna tharntu,
Wakayi mara tupirri ngarni nhulanguru.

Look after the land and the land will look after you.
