The Anangu traditional owners today (26 October 2010) celebrate the 25th anniversary of the handback of Uluru-Kata Tjuta in central Australia. As part of the celebrations, elders will share stories at the base of Uluru, and there will also be cultural dancing, spear throwing, bands and other activities. The handback of Uluru in 1985 symbolises key movements for Indigenous land rights in Australia. National park chairperson Harry Wilson spoke of the joint management of the park and recognised the achievements over the past 25 years. He acknowledged the need for infrastructure improvements for the community of Mutitjuluand, that falls within the park boundaries, and spoke of working with people, and government, to move forward as a community.
