We acknowledge the impact of colonisation to this day, including discrimination in the way that our structures and systems operate.
We seek ways to rectify past wrongs and are deeply committed to Aboriginal self-determination and to supporting Victoria’s Treaty and truth-telling processes.
We acknowledge that Treaty will have wide-ranging impacts for the way we work with Aboriginal Victorians. We seek to create respectful and collaborative partnerships and develop policies and programs that respect Aboriginal self-determination and align with Treaty aspirations.
We acknowledge that Victoria’s Treaty process will provide a framework for the transfer of decision-making power and resources to support self-determining Aboriginal communities to take control of matters that affect their lives. We commit to working proactively to support this work in line with the aspirations of Traditional Owners and Aboriginal Victorians.
