Mantiyupwi Family Trust engaged Tiwi researchers to work with the Ground Up team at CDU to research gambling in Wurrumiyanga. The research team has been led by four Tiwi researchers – Kristelle Orsto, Rebecca Pupangamirri, Lorenzo Kerinaiua and Ainsley Kerinaiua. They were also joined by two CDU researchers – Michaela Spencer and Michael Christie. The purpose of this research is assisting the Mantiyupwi Traditional Owners to manage gambling in Wurrumiyanga. We are taking seriously the role that gambling plays in everyday life, while also supporting Mantiyupwi to work in ways that help keep culture strong and Tiwi people safe.
