    • The 2020 DHML was run in partnership between ANTaR ACT and ANTaR National.  The National Director of ANTaR, Paul Wright, spoke about the National Treaties Summit and its seminar series.
    • The 2020 keynote speaker was Tony McAvoy, SC. who is a Wiri man from Queensland, near Mackay.  Mr McAvoy was admitted as a solicitor in Queensland in 1988 and went onto focus in the areas of native title and land rights.  He was admitted as a barrister in NSW in 2000 and won the inaugural National Indigenous Legal Professional of the Year Award in 2010.  Mr McAvoy was appointed a senior counsel in 2015 , making him the first ever First Nations person in Australia to be appointed to this position.  One of Mr McAvoy’s greatest achievements was securing native title recognition for the Quandamooka people of North Stradbroke Island in 2011.

  1. I really appreciated this lecture yet would love to listen to it again.
    I desire to ponder some of the more poignant points and observations that Tony presented.
    Thank you in anticipation of replay.
