Victorian Registered Aboriginal Parties
The Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006 (the Act) recognises Aboriginal people as the primary guardians, keepers and knowledge holders of Aboriginal cultural heritage. At a local level, Registered Aboriginal Parties (RAPs) are the voice of Aboriginal people in the management and protection of Aboriginal cultural heritage in Victoria.

Festival Stall Ideas
Aboriginal Languages Map
RecVic has recently started using this Aboriginal Language Map of Victoria (available from ANTaR Vic) as part of an interactive stall display. We have laminated the map and mounted it on a pin board so that people can put a pin where they come from and learn who the traditional owners are and what language they speak. It's been a great way to engage people and has also sold a lot more maps!
Merchandise Kits for Stalls
ANTaR Victoria can organise merchandise kits for stall for LRGs, if you are interested in this for your next event, please contact Jen Anderson at the ANTaR Office. To see what merchandise you could sell, check out ANTaR's Online Store.
Groups have also shared how activities for children/young people such as badge making and face painting have also helped their stall be a great success.
Resources Developed by Local Reconciliation Groups
Please note these resources have been developed by LRGs for sharing. Reconciliation Victoria does not have capacity to verify content of resources.
Geelong One Fire Reconciliation Group and Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-operative have worked together to upgrade the fabulous www.djillong.net.au website which was developed by Uncle David with support of One Fire in 2012.
It's a unique resource which positively links with the theme of 2016 Reconciliation Week: Our History, Our Story, Our Future.
