Path to Treaty

On 16 August 2022, First Nations people, non-Indigenous Queenslanders, and the Queensland Government participated in the signing of Queensland’s Path to Treaty Commitment. This is a critical step in setting the foundation for a new and just relationship—one that acknowledges the injustices experienced by Aboriginal Peoples and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, and provides a platform for truth-telling, equality, and opportunity.

The 2023 Queensland Reconciliation Awards coincides with the government’s focus on Path to Treaty and welcomes the opportunity to increase cross-cultural awareness.

The Queensland Reconciliation Awards is an initiative of the Queensland Government through the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, and the Department of Seniors, Disability Services and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships.
