Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Protocols

Consultation has concluded: The revised Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Protocols were adopted at the June 2017 Council Meeting: you can view it on Council's wesbite.

The City of Wagga Wagga’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Protocols have been revised and are currently on public exhibition.

The Cultural Protocols are an important part of the social and professional structures Aboriginal people live and work in and aim to provide a comprehensive resource for all Council staff to use when liaising, consulting and engaging with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

It will ensure staff provide a service that is both relevant and respectful when working with the local Aboriginal people.

As well as outlining appropriate practices, the document also provides cultural and historical context for the Wagga Wagga area.

Some of the key changes include:

  • More relevant, easy to read and practical version of the 2010 document
  • Updated design concept with local images to improve readability and capture the relationship between the City of Wagga Wagga and the Aboriginal Community

It is vital that local Aboriginal people review the Cultural Protocols and provide feedback before they are adopted so that we can ensure they meet the needs of the community.

Staff will be engaging directly with Aboriginal people on the revised document, or you can make your submission by reading the document and using the form below.
