The Nyungah Tent Embassy on Perth's Heirisson Island has been re-established.

More than 70 Nyungahs gathered to rebuild the camp site which was demolished by police two years ago.

A small delegation from the Embassy has informed police they've reclaimed the Embassy's grounds and also stated they'll use the site as a refuge for the homeless.

It'll also be used a refugee camp for those displaced by the WA Government's closing down of remote communities.

Guest speaker at the reopening, Gary Jagamara, warned of provocations by WA authorities opposed to the Embassy.
