Congress is here to give our mob a say on issues that are important to us and to be a national voice for all First Nations Peoples.

The expertise and passion of our Delegates and Members, backed by the authority and leadership of the elected National Board, gives us the power to represent the views of First Peoples to government, advocate for change, and uphold the rights of our Peoples.

These principles emphasise self-determination and empowerment, The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and courageous leadership.

They commit Congress to meaningful engagement with members and Delegates, innovation, high standards of research and sustainable solutions. They ask that we honour the culture, diversity and unity of our peoples.
