21 - 22 November 2015
Whether your Nation fully understands the implications of Sovereignty, UDIs, Treaties or the Con in Constitutional Recognition or not, you are welcome to the Gathering of Nations to contribute and learn.
To be fully involved in discussions you need to have the right to speak for Country, the authority to speak for your Nation or the right to collect information for your nation. We would like you to introduce your delegation by identifying who you are, what Nation you belong to and your Dreaming. Bring your flag if you have one.
Observers welcome. If you are stolen generation or have been forcefully dislocated from your Country/Nation, you must inform us all, because we must restore knowledge, as it is not within our culture for our people to be without Dreaming and Connection to Country.
It is time to bring back the fullness and health of our culture, which underpins our culture. [... and don't rely on anthropologists and genealogists because they are known to get it wrong!]
The venue for 2015 will be the Main Dining Room of Old Parliament House which can hold 400 people. It is larger than the House of Representatives in Old Parliament House where we have held previous gatherings. We are charging a small registration fee of $20 per day to cover venue expenses. The room in the Old Parliament House building can hold 400 people.
Camping at the Aboriginal Embassy but be as self-sufficient as possible.
