The paper aims to finalise the long-awaited review by the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships (DATSIP) into the Queensland Cultural Heritage Act, and outlines proposals for change which will affect agricultural landowners.
The three key focus areas are:
- Providing opportunities to improve cultural heritage protection, including through increased consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
- Reframing the definitions of ‘Aboriginal party’ and ‘Torres Strait Islander party’
- Promoting leadership by First Nations peoples in cultural heritage management and decision-making
AgForce also wants to hear your views and feedback on the proposed changes to inform our submission.
