LIVE Q&A EVENT: Treaty, People, Place


The State of Victoria is working with Aboriginal Victorians as equal partners to develop a historic first treaty (or treaties), which has the potential to redefine the relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Victorians. The Northern Territory, Queensland and Australian Capital Territory state governments have also started treaty discussions.
