KLC joins United Nations delegation
KLC Deputy CEO Tyronne Garstone has returned from New York after attending this year’s United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.
Ty was part of a delegation of National Native Title Council reps who travelled to the UN to be a part of discussions focusing on the conference’s main theme: Traditional Knowledge: generation, transmission and protection.
Traditional knowledge is critical for Traditional Owners in looking after country and protecting significant heritage sites. A key priority for Traditional Owners is to protect their knowledge for future generations.
Ty joined Indigenous delegates across Australia who had travelled to New York to ensure that Indigenous issues could be heard by a global audience and to learn from the experiences of other Indigenous peoples from all around the world.
