THE ELDERS’ VOICE
The Elders’ Voice provides the Assembly with the cultural strength and guidance that is needed on this journey to Treaty – giving our Elders a platform for their voices to be listened to and respected at every step. When Elders speak, we listen.
THE YOUTH VOICE
While the older generations have paved the way for Treaty, our young people will be the ones living it.
The Youth Voice brings young mob together so they can share their ideas and aspirations for Treaty.
There are currently 31 Members who sit on the Assembly, 21 occupying general seats and the remaining in reserved seats – designated for each formally recognised Traditional Owner group.
The Assembly has developed an additional pathway for Traditional Owner groups who do not have formal recognition under legislation to apply for a reserved seat.
