I believe in Treaty because it goes somewhere towards returning to the rightful owners of Country the rights that have been denied us since colonisation. 

My ancestors would be so pleased that we finally have recognition of our rights as Traditional Owners and I want to do as much as I can to make the most of this opportunity. 

This is a time when our culture can be given the recognition it deserves in this State. We want to maintain our culture, strengthen the identity of our children, raise the profile of our culture, and ensure that we have a say over our countries. 

The Treaty will reinforce our status as Traditional Owners of our Country, it will give us a voice at the table and resources for us to assist our community members in need of support to reach their destiny
