Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory would have the capacity to govern themselves and settle local native title claims…. under recommendations to be included in the framework to negotiate treaties with the NT Government .

NT Treaty Commissioner, Professor Mick Dodson and Deputy Treaty Commissioner Ursula Raymond are currently visiting central Australian Aboriginal communities to determine the level of interest in a Treaty with First Nations and Aboriginal Territorians.

While it is not the Treaty Commissioner's role to negotiate treaties…Professor Dodson… a long term barrister and lawyer who specialises in Native Title and human rights….. can make recommendations for a framework to negotiate treaties to the NT Government.
