Reserved Seat holder representing Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation

Gunaikurnai

Stick with us. This is ground-breaking, innovative, nation-building work! 

We’re all very mindful about the presence the First Peoples’ Assembly has across Victoria and across the nation, and I’m doing my best to represent my people in a strong, authentic way in terms of the Treaty conversations. 

I think we’d like to see us have a really good foundation and move into an authority and really start working on some of the key concepts on what a state-wide Treaty might look like. 

We also need to make sure the environment’s really fertile, where the Aboriginal Community is really quite confident to come and talk about what their aspirations are right now.
