Whilst Prime Minister Scott Morrison and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern were debating Australia’s deportation policies on Friday, Minister for Indigenous Australians Ken Wyatt and New Zealand Minister Nanaia Mahuta were signing a ‘historic’ Indigenous agreement.

The ‘Indigenous Collaborative Agreement’ is a first-of-its-kind partnership, and is based off Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand’s strong relationship, due to sharing similar experiences and aspirations for the future.

The collaboration aims to promote social, cultural and economic advancement to improve the lives of Indigenous people from both countries.
