ThePitjantjatjara/Yankunytjatjara Lands are held on freehold title under the termsof the Anangu Pitjantjatjara/Yankunytjatjara Lands. Entrance to the AnanguPitjatjantjara Lands is dependant on having a permit. Anangu Education Servicesnegotiate with Anangu Pitjantjatjara the issue of these permits. Schools canalso arrange for the issue of permits. 

Most students at Mimili are Anangu and speak eitherPitjantjatjara or Yankunytjatjara as their first language. A few students arefrom other Aboriginal language groups and speak Aboriginal English. From timeto time non-Aboriginal students are also enrolled.
