Community consultations: March 2017

In March 2017, Aboriginal Victoria facilitated 10 community consultations across 6 regional and metropolitan locations including Echuca, Mildura, Portland, Sale, Wodonga and Melbourne, to inform and engage the Victorian Aboriginal community in the treaty process.
 

Treaty Circle Facilitators

Victorian Aboriginal community members wanting to make treaty happen, were called upon to become Treaty Circle Facilitators, to help their community have their say and drive the pathway to treaty.

Treaty Circle Facilitator handbooks were provided:

There was also a Representation Questionnaire for people who couldn't attend community consultations.

Treaty Circle Facilitators were able to receive up to $500 reimbursement to run treaty circles, and provided with training and on-going support.

Online Message Stick

Anyone unable to attend a consultation or Treaty Circle was invited to visit an Online Message Stick to have their say about representation. Visitors could complete a questionnaire, find out more about what a representative body might look like, hear about the journey so far and find out about the next steps in the treaty process.
