First off the block, in Februarywas Victoria - where Mr Andrews' government has discovered how protracted and tortuous the process can be, even for just one state.
That work has included four state-wide forums, dozens of regional community consultations and "roadshows", a six-day "community assembly" in Melbourne, and legislation enshrining the route to treaty talks, which the government hopes would discourage an incoming Liberal administration from jettisoning the process.
The election for the representative body, to take place across six voting regions, has thrown up multiple challenges. Should, for instance, traditional owners from interstate, now living in Victoria, be able to stand?

Treaty negotiations could still be years off, but they promise to be extraordinarily complex, with up to different clan groups seeking separate treaties and, in some cases, disputing each other's territorial boundaries and ancestry.
