Aboriginal Affairs Sub-Committee of Government

Strengthening its commitment to Aboriginal Affairs, the Northern Territory Government has established an Aboriginal Affairs Sub-Committee of Cabinet.

The sub-committee, co-chaired by the Chief Minister and Assistant Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Selena Uibo MLA, is made up of MLAs and nine Aboriginal advisors, all focused on progressing key issues relating to Aboriginal Affairs.

The sub-committee will provide expert advice to Government about key priorities including Treaty, local decision making and ensuring land and sea ownership deliveries on the economic and social aspirations of Aboriginal people. The sub-committee will also work locally and with the Australian Government to produce positive outcomes for Aboriginal Territorians.

The Aboriginal Advisors will contribute expertise, knowledge, skills and local experiences and will provide valuable and influential advice to government while having the opportunity to influence change on matters affecting Aboriginal Territorians.
