Mäpuru Yirralka College is a part of Yirralka education; allowing families, elders and custodians to form their own educational programs and schooling for children. This model embeds bi-cultural and bi-literacy education into schooling that takes place on Yolŋu land. Mäpuru college allows for the formation of an important vision for the Mäpuru people to live 'self-determined lives of dignity on ancestral estates'.
