    Truth Telling with Commissioner Sue-Anne Hunter

    Friday 13th May 12pm-1.30pm (Online)

    Like many countries before it, Australia is now finally entering a phase where some State governments initiating treaty negotiations with relevant First Nations peoples


    It is noteworthy that to date, all First Nations peoples have demanded that there be a truth-telling process established as stage one of any treaty negotiations, as has happened around the world


    In 2020 the Victorian government entered into Treaty negotiations, and established the First Peoples Assembly to partner with, in the creation of a Treaty Framework. The First Peoples Assembly recommended the establishment of The Yoor-rook Justice Commission, which commenced in 2021 to receive submissions from ATSI people living in Victoria about the effects of colonisation


    Commissioner Sue Anne Hunter, from Yoor-rook will discuss the role of The Commission and what truth-telling means in the context of Victoria moving Forward with a Treaty for all Victorians

    John Harding will host the session and field questions from the audience for both he and Commissioner Hunter
