The First Nations Heritage Protection Alliance has welcomed today’s release of the State Of The Environment Report and looks forward to working with the Government to ensure First Nations Peoples have a greater say in defining and protecting cultural heritage.

The Alliance, which represents Aboriginal Land Councils, Native Title Representative Bodies and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Organisations, was created following the destruction of the 46,000 year-old heritage site Juukan Gorge by Rio Tinto in May 2020.

In releasing the report, Minister for Environment and Water Tanya Plibersek recommitted Labor to standalone laws for cultural heritage protection and a greater say for First Nations peoples in looking after country.
