About northern territory

Northern Territory Stolen Generations Aboriginal Corporation was formally incorporated in 1998 to respond directly to the needs and concerns of members of the Stolen Generations, their families and communities.

The formation of NTSGAC was the result of discussions and the express wishes of many members of the Stolen Generations in the Top End since the early 1970's which included members of many institutional groups such as Croker Island, Garden Point, Retta Dixon, Kahlin Compound and Groote Eylandt as well as those removed through adoption and foster care arrangements.

As a result of these extended discussions over many years often held under a Mango tree in the yard of Maurice Scott, the concept of the first national conference to consider Stolen Generations issues was discussed in 1993 and became a reality in October 1994.

This conference, The Going Home Conference, was crucial to the Federal Government’s decision to undertake the now historic National Inquiry to into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from their Families, which resulted in the Bringing Them Home Report. This report has enabled most Stolen Generations services throughout Australia to receive ongoing funding over the last ten years.

It is important to highlight this history as it shows the vision and commitment over many years of those who established the Northern Territory Stolen Generations Corporation, many of whom remain involved as either members or on the Board of Directors. It is a testament to the importance and relevance of NTSGAC to Stolen Generations people that these members have continued their involvement in planning and implementing for the future, working in conjunction with others, both individuals and organisations with a determination to succeed despite all the difficulties and setbacks they have encountered. NTSGAC continues to effectively consult with members of the Stolen Generations and respond accordingly with outstanding and unparalleled success.
