The town of Port Hedland is a town of many contrasts, with high incomes and a strong resource sector on the one hand, abject poverty, disadvantage and social problems on the other. Although Indigenous people have been major contributors to the culture, diversity and development of the region, they have generally failed to share equitably in the rewards of economic prosperity. This report seeks to promote a multilateral and targeted approach by all stakeholders to improve outcomes for Indigenous people in Port Hedland. It provides an overview of existing programs and services available to Indigenous people in the region. It also presents demographic data on the Indigenous population and provides an analysis of key issues and priorities under the key themes of: health and community services; housing and infrastructure; justice, safety and security; education and training; income and employment; land, heritage and culture. Appendices are published separately - see Publications index,
