Gunaikurnai Settlement review update

 

GK RSA March 30 2020 Update.

Here’s where this review is up to. Given the importance to Gunaikurnai,  we are keeping this review going as a high priority. We’re still on track to have a draft report ready by the end of April for GLaWAC and Elders to review. Note that we were planning full group yarns, but given the COVID-19 restrictions we will be ensuring that we post further surveys and feedback options so Gunaikurnai community can provide individual feedback to this review. Our magazines and annual reports have included articles regarding this review to keep you in the loop. 

Watch this space for more updates.
