Treaty talks underway
Posted on: Thu 20 Apr 2017
Dr Roger Thomas has been appointed independent Commissioner for Treaty in South Australia. Aboriginal Message spoke to Dr Thomas about the road ahead for Treaty in SA just after he had addressed representatives of Native Title groups from across the state.
Late last year, the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Kyam Maher announced that the South Australian Government would start discussions with Aboriginal people in the state to negotiate Treaty.
The Government says it will begin by talking with the three newly established Aboriginal Regional Authorities – the Adnyamathanha, Ngarrindjeri and Far West Coast peoples.
