Set on a rural cattle station, the Cultural Horsemanship Program is run by Indigenous people who have the experience, knowledge and drive to help the youth overcome barriers and succeed. The program focuses on experiential hands-on learning, natural consequences, the development of life skills and being in touch with the land. The Mona Cultural Horsemanship Program is aims to encourage, enrich and empower young Aboriginal boys and girls, teaching them to respect themselves and to learn to respect others.
The Mona Aboriginal Corporation been in existence since 2012, within this time we have helped a number of youth in the mount Isa region and surrounding districts, towards their goals for their future.
Campaigning for Indigenous rights
“Amnesty International Australia’s Community is Everything” campaign is all about ending the over-representation of Indigenous kids in the justice system.
Indigenous solutions for kids
“Tomorrow another kid will commit suicide, another child will go to jail, another generation will be lost. If we could save the life of one child, that’s a generation,”
Prevention and early intervention programs are the most effective in diverting young people away from detention and putting them on positive pathways.
