The Northern Territory Treaty Commission is headed up by the NT Treaty Commissioner, Professor Mick Dodson AM. The role of the Treaty Commissioner is to consult with Aboriginal people across the Northern Territory to inform development of a framework for future treaty negotiations. The Treaty Commissioner is required to deliver firstly an interim report, as well as a Discussion Paper for public release and later a final report to the NT Chief Minister on the outcomes of the consultations and recommendations for the framework.
