What is treaty?

What are Treaties? Why are they important? What can they come to represent and where they might lead us together as reconciled peoples?



ANTAR believes Australia needs treaties with the First Nations Peoples of this continent, in line with the calls from the Uluru Statement from the Heart, to move forwards together. In our campaign for Treaty, we aim to educate about what treaties are, why they are important, what they might come to represent, and where they might lead us together as reconciled Australians.
