Treaty Negotiation Framework Fact Sheet

May 26, 2023

The Assembly has reached agreement with the State on a Treaty Negotiation Framework. The Framework has self-determination and empowerment at its heart.

The Framework represents a new relationship between First Peoples and the State that restores Cultural Authority to its rightful place and recognises Aboriginal Lore, Law and First Peoples’ rights and responsibilities.

This new relationship requires the State to step back so that First Peoples can self-determine our participation in Treaty negotiations. 

This fact sheet provides information on how the TNF sets out the ground rules for Treaty negotiations.
