Ngunnawal Elders Council

(Question No 426)

Mrs Burke asked the Minister for Arts, Heritage and Indigenous Affairs, upon notice, on 28 June 2005:

If a democratically elected Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander body is set up by the ACT Government, what role will the Ngun(n)awal Elders Council play in advising the ACT Government.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

The Government's view is that any democratically elected Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander body would also acknowledge the separate and distinct role of the United Ngunnawal Elders Council (UNEC) in the provision of advice to the Chief Minister on cultural and heritage issues of particular relevance to Ngunnawal people.
