Our land is our birth right: MABO25 & Beyond
In 2017 the annual National Native Title Conference will be convened by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) and the North Queensland Land Council (NQLC) on the traditional lands of the Gurumblibara Wulgurukaba people, Townsville Queensland. The conference will be held at the Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre from Monday 5 - Wednesday 7 June 2017.
The conference seeks to highlight the challenges and opportunities of native title in the broader context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander aspirations for their lands, waters and communities. The conference aims to promote public debate, foster knowledge acquisition and sharing between native title holders and other parties. It is the leading annual event for professional development for NTRB/NTSP staff, government bodies, native title practitioners and academics.
Each conference is strongly supported by native title representative bodies, native title claimants and holders, their legal counsel, native title practitioners such as anthropologists, government institutions and departments, politicians, judges, academics and others.
The conference themes and a call for papers will be available soon.
