About our work

At our yarning session we’ll share updates on what we’re working on, including:

Elders’ Voice will provide Aboriginal Elders of Victoria opportunities to exercise their cultural authority and experience to strengthen Victoria’s progress towards Treaty. It will provide guidance, wisdom and cultural oversight to the work of the Assembly.

Cultural Governance will empower the Assembly’s processes, governance and membership to ensure that it is culturally robust, culturally safe, and driven by cultural protocols of doing business.

Self-Determination Fund will be a financial resource designed to empower Traditional Owners and Aboriginal people in Victoria in Treaty-making processes.

Treaty Authority will provide independent oversight of the Treaty process and negotiating parties. It will be Aboriginal-led, culturally strong and underpinned by the principles of Aboriginal self-determination.

Interim Dispute Resolution Process will embed Aboriginal lore and ways of doing business, and provide a timely, independent, fair, and transparent process to resolve disputes in progressing towards Treaties.

Treaty Negotiation Framework will set the rules for Treaties negotiations. This includes what should be included in Treaties, and who negotiates and is represented by Treaties.

Truth-telling will be a process of openly sharing historical truths, acknowledging past wrongs, ensuring an accurate historical record and setting a common understanding of our shared history.
