The community exists on the traditional lands of the Ngaanyatjarra people, many of whom were transported in the 1960s to Warbuton mission. In the 1970s Ngaanyatjarra people returned to the region from Warburton mission. Since this time the community has steadily grown in size and population.
The community is managed through its incorporated body, Papulankutia Community Incorporated.
Additionally, the Yarnangu Ngaanyatijarraku Parna Aboriginal Corporation was incorporated under the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006, and acts as the prescribed body corporate for the Ngaanyatjarra native title determination.
Papulankutla Layout Plan No.1 is not yet endorsed by the community and exists in draft format only. The draft map set can be viewed at Planning Western Australia official site.
