Anniversary of First Councillors Meeting

About this event

Sunday, August 23, 2020

The 23rd of August is the Anniversary of the First Councillors Meeting, which took place on Masig (Yorke Is.), in 1937. Representatives from 14 Torres Strait Communities attended, and after lengthy discussions, unpopular bylaws, including the evening curfews, were canceled and a new code of local representation was agreed upon.
