QSNTS Talks Operations, Compensation at CNTA Anthropology Conference

The Centre for Native Title Anthropology recently hosted its annual conference on 4-5 February 2021 at the UQ Women’s College in Brisbane, at which QSNTS Chief Executive Officer Kevin Smith presented a compelling speech canvassing the challenges faced by Traditional Owners on the path to self-determination.

Research Officer Mia McCulloch also participated in the Research Managers and Anthropologists panel discussion, covering QSNTS’ approach to native title compensation in this developing area of native title law.
