It's not often that a major international conference has to turn away delegates, but that's the case with the World Indigenous Network conference that begins on Sunday in Darwin in northern Australia.

More than 1,200 people from 50 indigenous groups from around the world filed their registrations before organisers said "no more".

Presenter: Geraldine Coutts

Speaker: Chrissy Grant, Deputy Chair, Australian Government's National Indigenous Advisory Group
