As a privileged white man born and raised in country Queensland I wholeheartedly support the Uluru Statement from the Heart. This valuable document should not have been dismissed by our Prime Minister. Four years on, it
is time for our government to honour its commitment to a referendum once a model for the Voice of our First Nations people has been settled. Our First Nations Australians should take their rightful place in policy making discussions and negotiations. I strongly support inclusive dialogue grounded in cultural processes.It is time that The First Nations Voice be heard and protected by our constitution, so that moving forward with agreement making and truth telling, can be done in an inclusive and culturally appropriate manner.
We need to give authority and legitimacy to the Voice of our First Nation people, by recognising their Voice in the Constitution.
