To mark the end of NAIDOC Week, the Queensland Government signed a historic joint Statement of Commitment as part of the Tracks to Treaty – Reframing the relationship with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders initiative. A panel of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders and Indigenous Queenslanders co-chaired by Dr Jackie Huggins AM and Michael Lavarch AO will provide leadership for the initiative. A Treaty Working Group will lead state-wide consultation and engagement beginning in the second half of 2019, as part of developing the Path to Treaty process. An associated discussion paper will soon be released to provide an opportunity for Queenslanders to have their say – keep an eye on eNews to be notified when this paper is released.
