Aboriginal Community

Tenterfield shire council would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land and would also like to pay respect to the elders past, present and emerging of the Jukembal, Kamilaroi and Bundjalung nations and extend that respect to other aboriginal people.

 First Nations Voice to Parliament

As you know, the Prime Minister has committed to holding a referendum on an Indigenous Voice to Parliament in this term of parliament, and work is continuing in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people about what will go forward to the Australian people.

A Voice to Parliament will give Indigenous communities a route to help inform policy and legal decisions that impact their lives. Giving people a say will lead to more effective results.
