It’s all to progress the movement towards a Victorian treaty and will coincide with a by-election in which First Nations people in the state’s north-east will choose who will represent them in the Treaty process.
The event is being held by the First Peoples’ Assembly of Victoria, and will feature one of the finest Australian music lineups to grace a stage this year, with hometown stars Archie Roach and Briggs set to receive a very special reception.
Co-Chair of the First Peoples’ Assembly of Victoria, and proud Nira illim bulluk man of the Taungurung nation, Marcus Stewart, said after such a tough couple of years in Victoria, it was time to celebrate.
