ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body response to Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs statement regarding ACT Treaty process

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body (ATSIEB) support the statement of the
ACT Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs in relation to an ACT Treaty
consultation process.

ATSIEB was established to enable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the ACT to
have a strong, democratically-elected voice and this will be encouraged throughout the ACT
Treaty process.

ATSIEB look forward to and welcome future Treaty consultations that are inclusive of
everyone of the ACT Community.

Quote attributed to the Chairperson of the ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected
Body: “Treaty is everyone’s business. It’s for everyone”.
