We, Australia do not have a Treaty with our Indigenous first nations people.
The lands and ancient cultures and their wisdom and knowledge must be repected. Having an indigenous voice in Parliament will assist in this.

Making this change will also give Australia credibility. It has long been a dark cloud and downfall of Australian governance not having done at last this gesture, let alone a Treaty.

The health, education and equal rights of citizenry status in all aspects of law must be improved.
The Australian government, lawmakers and law enforcers must be held accountable for their treatment of our people. Standards must be improved and maintained.
This is an inevitable move for this country.
The current govt will gain in the eyes of the Australian people, and will also save the public purse n the medium to long term.
