Yalata is a Pitjanjatjara Community and many of the people are related to people in the North West Pitjanjatjara communities. There are also family ties with people from Cundeelee in Western Australia and Coonanna - near Kalgoorlie.

The community at Yalata was formed as a result of the people being moved from their country around Maralinga and Emu to make way for Atomic testing.

Land Rights were granted to the Yalata people in 1985 and since then a small homelands settlement has been set up approximately five hours North of Yalata called Oak Valley. This community has its own Council and many of the older people live here. It also has a store, a mobile Health Clinic and School. The school is run by an Aboriginal Education Worker and two teachers from Yalata School.

The population of Yalata is approximately 350 although some are moving to Oak Valley.

The school was administered by the Lutheran Church from 1952 and changed to the South Australian Education Department in 1971.
