Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Commission 2006/2007 Annual Report 37 Remote Indigenous Strategy The remote Indigenous strategy remains a priority within the Public Education and Training Unit within its on-going objective of providing as many Indigenous persons and communities as possible with information about discrimination, harassment and bullying. Producing the video Know Your Rights, Know Your Responsibilities was a strategy to partly address this priority, and favourable feedback has been provided by viewers. However the numbers of people with video access in communities is limited as most people now use DVD. The conversion of the materials to DVD will be a priority for next financial year. The DVDs will be distributed in the 14 Aboriginal languages detailed below: The Commission accepts every opportunity to promote anti-discrimination in communities by offering education programs, providing information and attending public events and/or celebrations where information can be disseminated in the most appropriate manner. For example, the Commissioner participated in the Wave Hill 40th year celebration and training programs are regularly provided to students at Batchelor College. The ADC remains vigilant to the needs of Indigenous persons for information, education and training and this strategy will be further developed in 2007-2008.
