Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

Sovereignty was never ceded.

The constitutionally enshrined Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice is an essential reform of the 2017 Uluru Statement from the Heart and should be pursued along with the Uluru Statement’s other two crucial reforms for agreement making and truth-telling processes. Voice, Treaty and Truth are complementary, interconnected and should be understood as a single, essential reform agenda.

The Alteration Bill meets the expectations of the Uluru Statement and the thousands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across Australia that were engaged in its conception. We believe it is long overdue to constitutionally recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first sovereign Nations of the Australian continent who were the caretakers of these lands more than 60,000 years prior to colonisation, and who continue to assert their rightful place as Australia’s First Peoples.
