Ten Aboriginal leaders from the southern region and ten from the northern region of the Northern Territory are selected each year to join the First Circles Leadership program. Members have the opportunity to talk directly with Northern Territory Ministers and Cabinet members about government policies and programs impacting them and their communities.

NAIDOC Week The Rainbow Serpent came out of the Dreamtime to create this land. It is represented by the snake and it forms the shape of Australia, which symbolises how it created our lands. The colour from the Rainbow Serpent is reflected on to the figure to display our connection to the Rainbow Serpent, thus our connection to country. The overlapping colours on the outside is the Dreamtime. The figure inside the shape of Australia is a representation of Indigenous Australians showing that this country - since the dawn of time - always was, and always will be Aboriginal land.
