Summary Information:

The National Native Title Council (NNTC) is the peak body for the native title sector. Through the native title system, the NNTC advocates for the rights and interests of all First Nations people and supports their right to true self-determination. This includes their right to speak for and manage their own Country, to govern their own communities, to participate fully in decision-making and to self-determine their own social and economic development. 

The NNTC is a membership-based non-profit, made up of regional Native Title Representative Bodies, Native Title Service Providers, local Prescribed Body Corporates and Traditional Owner Corporations.

The NNTC's main goals include:

  • Supporting First Nations' development through self-determination
  • Influencing legislation and policy
  • Working with partners to support First Nations-led economic development
