Ursula Raymond appointed Deputy NT Treaty Commissioner

2nd Aug 2019

The Northern Territories new Deputy Treaty Commissioner says a key part of her role is to engage with Aboriginal women.

On Tuesday Northern Territory Treaty Commissioner Mick Dodson announced Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander woman Ursula Raymond as the Deputy Treaty Commissioner.

Her appointment comes following a public expression of interest process.

Ms Raymond told CAAMA Radio she became involved because she believes treaty is an important topic for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The Deputy Treaty Commissioner said a big challenge is educating non-Aboriginal people about the treaty process.

CAAMA Radio spoke with the Treaty Commissioner about her appointment.
