Posted: Monday, 2 September 2019

Barkly Regional Council would like to thank the new Northern Territory Treaty Commissioner, Professor Mick Dodson AM for attending our Council meeting on Thursday last week.

The role of the Treaty Commissioner is not to negotiate a Treaty but to develop a framework that will be used to negotiate Treaties. This framework will ensure that future Treaty negotiations are conducted respectfully; in god faith; with an equality of standing and are culturally appropriate.

Thank you to Mick Dodson, Deputy Treaty Commissioner; Ursula Raymond and Director; Steve Rossingh for attending and delivering your presentation to Council.
