The National Native Title Council, the Peak Body for Australia’s Native Title Organisations and the Federation of Victorian Traditional Corporations are proud to announce that they will jointly be hosting the 2019 Native Title Conference: Land, Rights & Recognition!
The Conference will be held at the iconic MCG, Melbourne on Monday and Tuesday 3 and 4 June.
The Conference will bring together Australia’s native title and land rights leaders with a primary aim of developing strategies to integrate the land rights and native title movement with the development of First Nations Treaties and Constitutional Recognition. The Conference promises to be a watershed in a new era of relations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australia.
Day 1 of the Conference will be open to delegates generally. The day will feature nationally prominent speakers who will address the key issues of the role of land rights and land rights organisations in a National Indigenous Voice to the Parliament and how these organisations will interact with the outcomes of state-based treaties such as that currently under negotiation in Victoria. The day will conclude with a Gala Mabo Day Dinner in the Dining Room of the MCG.
Day 2 of the Conference is open only to members and employees of Native Title and other Land Rights Organisations and will involve specialist sessions on topics such as land and compensation claims, PBC Governance, Native Title anthropology, and Economic Development.
