The Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation says traditional owners in Western Australia are airing their grievances about the state Government's planned changes to the Aboriginal Heritage Act in significant numbers.

There are fears the 40-year-old laws that aim to protect and preserve the state's culturally and historically significant sites will be watered down to suit miners and developers.

Yamatji Marlpa spokesperson Simon Hawkins says TOs are speaking out to protect sacred sites and ensure they're properly consulted by government.
