Aboriginal people have no control over their destiny. It might be dressed up to look that way.
Aboriginal people didn’t cause the conditions they’re in today. A lot has to do with constant changing government policy.
You keep hearing the word “disadvantaged”, how did that happen? Its more like “marginalisation”, even on their own land that everyone else is turning a profit from, with royalties doled out here and there to make people believe they are the landlords of their country and masters of their future.
There are root causes to the hopelessness Aboriginal people are displaying now.
The Minister for Indigenous Affairs must be on another planet when he says the CDP is doing great things.
It’s just causing more hardship. Tracker was a forward thinker, but perhaps it impinged on other people’s place and power in the scheme of things.

Vowles, McConnell and Collins dumped from Caucus
Spot on, Alex Nelson. It annoys me as a generational Territorian that highly paid and non-elected advisors and bureaucrats on huge salaries, but no accountability to Territory people, call the shots over people we Territorians elected.
What do we do about it? Perhaps an intervention by the Commonwealth is needed and soon.

The Chief Minister’s Department runs the Territory government, not the Chief Minister or his Cabinet.
The Chief Ministers Department operates like the secret service.
And this nonsense of identifying a list of the “most powerful” in the NT only helps to boost their self inflated ego.

Treasurers meet on NT fiscal crisis: No offers from Canberra
@ Liberal, 21 December, 2018: Easy to point the finger at one sector of the Territory, as usual.
At the lot that are subject to Basics Cards, unemployment and all sorts of measures foisted on Aboriginal people by government, to then be dumped on the scrap heap of society, after the many failed social experiments, the last being the “Intervention”.
The Intervention turned Aboriginal affairs backwards at least 50 years, leaving Aboriginal people voiceless and with no control to “contribute” according to you, Liberal.
