Annual National Native Title Conference.
The conference is co-hosted by a native title
representative body (NTRB) and permission is sought
from local traditional owners to hold the
conference in their country."
"The conference engages with native title as
an active agenda for justice for people and country
- both before and after the outcome of native title
determination, and within the broader compass
of traditional ownership."
