To the Australian Government,

I hope this finds you well,

I am a 22 year old mother currently studying law with the University of Tasmania, I am
not a First Nations person though through common sense and my studies I am
interested in advocating for First Nations rights, Non-Indigenous liabilities for
discrimination/destruction and recognition of First Nations peoples culture, history and
future.

I recognise the importance of Makarrata treaties, permanent government representation
and Constitutional amendments as ways of uniting Indigenous and non-Indigenous
Australians.

Legislation is subject to amendments and voiding, and it is a far easier task to do this
than to make changes to the Federal Constitution.

It is crucial to ensure true representation to prevent systemic racism and ignorant
discussion which will lead no where. True representation would also give First Nations
peoples more trust and protection in the common law government system which would
further unite and heal Australia.

Currently, in my community of the Tasmanian Derwent Valley, I hear nothing of
Indigenous peoples. I am sure Indigenous people live here and want a voice in
Parliament.

It is high time Australian government participates and aims to advance the recognition
and connection between First Nations people because Australia is currently broken still
when we are divided and our First Nations peoples are suffering both spiritually and
physically.

With Regards,

Miss Fraser
