The Northern Territory has released a discussion paper on a treaty process with Aboriginal people, which will form the basis of the treaty commission’s consultations over the next few months.
The NT treaty commissioner, Prof Mick Dodson, said he was now looking forward to getting on the road to discuss the paper’s contents with Aboriginal Territorians.
I am seeking honest and constructive feedback on the discussion paper and I am particularly keen to hear about things you feel I may have missed out.
That’s what treaty is about. It’s not just a piece of paper. It’s not just symbolism. Treaty is a contract. It’s law. It acknowledges that our Aboriginal nations never ceded their sovereignty. It recognises the wrongs of the past to make a better future – in practical ways.
