Reconciliation is a process where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, non-Indigenous Australians and Australian governments forge a new relationship based on mutual understanding, recognition and respect.

ANTaR's vision of a reconciled Australia is a place where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures are valued, respected and affirmed across all areas of society.

Reconciliation requires proper restitution to the first Australians for the suffering caused by the invasion of their lands and the violence, dispossession and exclusion that followed.

In a reconciled Australia, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children will have the same life chances and choices as non-Indigenous children, Indigenous families will no longer fear violence and abuse and the length and quality of a person's life will not be determined by their racial background.
