Indigenous Government Services
Check this site for information on Government services to Indigenous Australians. Since the Australian Government has changed the way it works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people (with the 2005 abolition of ATSIC), this site will be updated with details of the government’s “New Arrangements for Indigenous Services.”
