Our Governance

As Mick Gooda, the Indigenous Social Justice Commissioner (Social Justice report 2012, p.90) said: 

“While Indigenous Peoples have governed ourselves since time immemorial in accordance with our traditional laws and customs, when we speak of Indigenous Governance we are not referring to the pre-colonial state. Rather, we are referring to contemporary Indigenous Governance: the more recent melding of our Traditional Governance with the requirement to effectively respond to the wider governance environment.”
