Michael Gunner ...the  Alice Springs born and bred Territorian who returned Labor to Government after only one term in Opposition says he is prepared to negotiate treaties with local aboriginal people and that it  will be a critical agenda item during his  first term of  government.

The Royal Commission into the Northern Territory's youth detention and child protection has held its official opening, with Commissioner Mick Gooda promising he will act with an "impartial mind" and make "meaningful recommendations".

Peak human rights and  Aboriginal legal services have united in their call for immediate action to protect those who are currently in youth detention.
