Australia indigenous treaties: Historic steps 'beginning of journey'
Australian states have taken historic steps this week towards the nation's first treaties with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

All of this has intensified discussion about whether others, including the Australian government, will follow suit.
