Time for Change – a discussion about Aboriginal Cultural Heritage laws

A Taking Control of Our Heritage Indigenous Cultural Heritage Conference special event.

On Thursday 26 November, Traditional Owners from across Australia explored the practical and legislative framework that should protect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Heritage.

With the release of Dhawura Ngilan - a vision for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage in Australia and the Best Practice Standards in Indigenous Cultural Heritage management and legislation, the event explored what best practice looks like in the current environment. With clear examples of where legislation has failed and where good laws could be better, our esteemed panellists explored the need for and prospects of change.

This live digital event provided 140 live stream attendees an in-depth exploration of Traditional Owner perspectives, live audience question time and an opportunity for greater networking with other attendees.

This event was presented by the Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Council with the National Native Title Council and the University of Melbourne.
