Australian-first Indigenous Reconciliation Inquiry

A nation-first inquiry will be held into the historic and ongoing injustices committed against Aboriginal Victorians.

The state government on Tuesday launched the Yoo-rrook Justice Commission, which is named after the Wemba Wemba-Wamba Wamba word for ‘truth’.

The inquiry, which will be independent of government and have the powers of a royal commission, will examine injustices committed against Aboriginal Victorians across all areas of social, political, cultural and economic life.

It will help guide Victoria’s treaty negotiations with its Aboriginal communities.
