Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
Important to give a voice to our indigenous people in the running of this country.
Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
Because others (colonisers) have not had their interest at heart when making decisions that impact the indigenous population.
Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
Prioritises the voice of our indigenous people in decisions made in parliament.
How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
Create a better understanding of what has happened in the past, acknowledge the wrongs, and build a more harmonious future.
