Our Background


The Nyungga Black business was founded in May 2013 by Nyunggai Warren Mundine AO. The name, Nyungga, is derived from the Bundjalung languages. In the Yugambeh dialect, which is spoken in the northern Bundjalung region, the word "nyangga" means sun. In the dialects spoken in the western Bundjalung region this would be pronounced with a 'u' instead of an 'a', or "nyungga". Therefore Nyungga Black means "black sun". Another declension of the word is "Nyunggai" which is Warren's Bundjalung "skin name". Warren made this part of his legal name in 2013.

Our Objectives


We believe that commerce and private enterprise is essential to economic development and genuine self-sufficiency and that Indigenous communities will not move from poverty to prosperity unless the conditions necessary for private enterprise and commerce to thrive exist in those communities.

We recognise that a gap exists between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians and that, increasingly, a gap is developing between remote and urban Indigenous communities. We believe that these gaps can be closed without the need for indefinite handouts but through the normal progression to full commercial participation. We also believe that unlocking Indigenous communities to real and sustainable development and bringing all Indigenous people into full participation in commerce will benefit the entire Australian economy.

We promote these objectives through:

  1. Advising clients who want to invest and do business in Australia, particularly in Indigenous communities and fostering and supporting Indigenous owned businesses;
  2. Creating new commercial and economic opportunities through the creation of Indigenous owned businesses and joint ventures
  3. Thought leadership and media, including through Yaabubiin Indigenous Commerce

Nyungga Black Group Consulting


Nyungga Black Group Consulting provides practical and strategic advice on doing business in Australia, including regional and remote Australia.


We advise clients on doing business with Indigenous Australians and organisations and in Indigenous communities.

We also provide strategic business advice to Indigenous businesses, business owners and entrepreneurs. In particular, we work with Indigenous Australians, organisations and communities who want to achieve business growth and independence. We understand this often requires navigating up a steep learning curve and dealing with structural hurdles imposed from outside. We provide the benefit of our knowledge, experience and networks to assist in this process and also to build partnerships that can supplement operations and deliver skills transfer.

We work with executive and management teams to identify potential business partners and business prospects and to build networks in the public, private and community sectors.

Through the breadth and diversity of our government, business, media and grassroots networks we can identify and foster unique opportunities for growth and competitive advantage.

 

Yaabubiin Indigenous Commerce


Yaabubiin Indigenous Commerce is an intellectual entrepreneur, bringing people together to generate and develop ideas and marketing those ideas to create change and promote private enterprise, self-sufficiency and economic participation as the key to Indigenous economic prosperity.
Yaabubiin’s purpose is to nurture ideas that will cause change by challenging conventional wisdom, questioning the status quo and fostering innovation to develop new ways of solving old problems.

Yaabubiin” is the Gumbaynggirr word for “economy” (literally “all things” – “yaabu” meaning “things” or “possessions” and “biin” meaning “all”). It is pronounced:

“yaa” – long “a” as in “car”

“bu” – short “u” as in “but”

“biin” – as in “been”

Yaabubiin Indigenous Commerce supports a Seven Point Reform Agenda


  1. Jobs
    Creation of REAL jobs as a result of commercial activities with Indigenous people being trained and job ready and on-boarded to a specific job at the end of their training.

  2. Regulatory Reform
    Remove barriers to private asset ownership and commerce to create an environment for commercial and economic growth.

  3. Private Ownership
    The economies of Indigenous communities are driven by private enterprise and private asset ownership. Indigenous people participate fully in Australia’s free market commercial system through real jobs in the non-government sector and through commercial activities.

  4. Investment
    Create an environment that will enable and foster investment and flow of capital into Indigenous communities.

  1. Infrastructure
    Invest in social and physical infrastructure within Indigenous communities, including by the community members themselves.

  2. Sustainability
    Economic sustainability – build structures and systems that will endure, enabling communities to thrive for the long term without disproportionate reliance on government or other external support.

  3. Desegregation
    Engagement by indigenous people and communities in the mainstream Australian and global economy.
