Why Resolving Native Title in South West WA Matters: Past, Current and Future Directions

With almost half of WA’s Aboriginal population residing in the South West, resolving native title in this region should be a critical element of our reconciliation agenda. There have never been more opportunities for Aboriginal and non-aboriginal West Australians to reach an outcome that helps build this common future.

Mr Glen Kelly, Chief Executive Officer of the South West Aboriginal Land and Sea Council (SWALSC) will be sharing his views about why a resolution of native title in the south west is important; what has happened until now; future and current directions; and what a resolution could look like, from the Council’s perspective.

The Dialogue will be facilitated, with a segment dedicated to guided discussion. We ask that you come prepared to share your ideas and experiences about this important cultural, environmental and social issue.

WACOSS is hosting this event, to be held at City West Lotteries House (Conference Room), 2 Delhi St, West Perth.
A light lunch and refreshments will be provided from 12 noon.
All responses should be made by no later than Tuesday April 7, to Lorilee Beecroft at WACOSS
