Country Liberal Party: custodians ignored on gallery

Way forward for nation-building projects – south of the Gap

 

Harold Furber (pictured) and Owen Cole, Chair and Deputy Chair of the Steering Committee of the National Indigenous Culture Centre, describe as “tragic” the unnecessary division caused by the proposed compulsory acquisition of the Anzac Oval site. The solution is to co-locate the gallery with the culture centre on the Desert Knowledge Precinct.

Mparntwe custodians: Lhere Artepe does not speak for us

They accuse the NT Government of showing them “utter disrespect”  with their latest move to advance the proposed national Aboriginal art gallery.  Their unanimous support for the gallery only if located south of the Gap was communicated to Minister Lauren Moss in June 2019 by a meeting of the custodians as a family group, with more than 30 attending. They say further that Lhere Artepe, which has lent its support to the government, has no jurisdiction over the Anzac Oval precinct, where native title has been extinguished.

 

UPDATE 25May 2010, 4.05pm: Minister Moss replies.
