Over the past 20 years, the gathering of Indigenous people at Cape York Summits has produced important, even historic stepping stones on the road to a better future for us and our children. Together, big decisions have been made about our rights – and our responsibilities – regarding land, health and other issues that will affect generations to come.

The first Summit at Lockhart River in 1990 led to the establishment of the Cape York Land Council. Other Summits  led major health and land initiatives for Cape York  Indigenous people. Since then, the united strength, wisdom and passion of voices raised at each Summit have begun to be heard by Indigenous communities – and governments – around Australia.
