Aboriginal Affairs Sub-Committee of Cabinet

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 Minister for Aboriginal Affairs) and the Assistant Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Selena Uibo MLA, is made up of six MLAs and five Aboriginal Advisors, all focused on progressing key issues relating to Aboriginal Affairs.

The Sub-Committee provides expert advice to government about key priorities including Treaty, local decision making and ensuring land and sea ownership deliver the economic and social aspirations of Aboriginal people. They will also provide guidance during the development and implementation of the NT Aboriginal Affairs Strategy.

The Sub-Committee will work locally and with the Australian Government to produce positive outcomes for Aboriginal Territorians on the Closing the Gap refresh.

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

Expressions of interest open

Expressions of Interest are now open for Aboriginal Advisors to represent the Top End and Big Rivers regions.
