AFAC Keynote Speakers

Douglas-D-Antoine
Douglas D’Antoine 

Recovery Executive Officer
Shire of Derby West Kimberley
 

Douglas D’Antoine is Bardi and Jawi from country 200km north of Broome, Western Australia. He resides in Broome and has a somewhat unique albeit unsophisticated position as to the advancement of Aboriginality that is overwhelmingly supported by the Fitzroy Valley 2023 ‘lived experience’.

Prior to the devastating Fitzroy Valley floods cause by ex-tropical cyclone Ellie in January 2023 (Floods), Douglas was a native title lawyer and then became the deputy CEO at the Kimberley Land Council, a corporate oil and gas lawyer at Woodside and then BP (upstream), roustabout and wool presser, and a police officer.

At the time of the Floods, he was the CEO for Bunuba Dawangarri Aboriginal Corporation that holds native title on trust for the Bunuba language group. By way of context, Nyikina, Gooniyandi, Walmajarri and Wangkatjungka are the four other language groups in the Fitzroy Valley.

Since the Floods, Douglas was the community advocate for those directly impacted by the Floods opposite the Prime Minister, Premier and many other
government dignitaries, then became the Executive Officer to the Fitzroy Valley Flood Recovery Working Group (Working Group) and is now the Recovery Executive Officer with the Shire of Derby West Kimberley.

Douglas’ presentation focusses on the nationally unprecedented nature in which the agencies associated with Floods engaged the Fitzroy Valley community, and particularly the five language groups within the Fitzroy Valley through the Working Group.

He will explain how that engagement, that is being recognised nationally as best practice, laid the foundations for the strong and effective governance of the flood recovery efforts that, by way of outcomes, includes the reduction of crime in Fitzroy Crossing and the Fitzroy Valley.
