Member for the North West region

Jason Kelly

Mutthi Mutthi and Wamba Wamba

I am a proud Wamba Wamba / Mutthi Mutthi man and inaugural member of the First Peoples’ Assembly of Victoria.

I am the author of the resolution that delivered YooRook Truth Commission. I am passionate about the voice of grassroots mob and I will continue to do my best to advocate for the voice of grassroots.

I believe Treaty must deliver cultural and economic self determination . Sovereignty was never ceded nor never will be; Treaty must deliver on the already Aboriginal community concept of ‘Pay the Rent’ .

I will fight to ensure our rights to co exist and hold Government to account on promises already made through the Victorian Aboriginal Affairs Framework and as signatories to the United Nation’s Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
