Governance in Yolŋu communities is complex and often is negotiated in the moment according to the issue at hand and most importantly who is involved. In Ramingining we started to map some of this information in an excel spreadsheet. While on one level it shows the arrangements of clans, leaders and places it does not take into account the gurruṯu system of governance arrangements. The data also shows which Yolŋu are involved in particular Balanda agencies and how some of these agencies organise their governance across cultures.
