I’m born and live in orange, I work in a cafe but wish to go study horticulture.
Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
I believe it is important because Indigenous peoples have the right to be actively involved in decision-making matters which would affect their rights.
Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
Without constitutional enshrinement, the Voice will not have legitimacy. It will not be able to achieve its objectives and perform its functions.
How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
The quality of life can be improved by allowing Indigenous communities to maintain cultural practises which allows them to have a deeper connection to their ancestors and land.
Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
It is important because it is their right as human beings and so the Indigenous community gain recognition to laws, traditions, customs and land tenure systems.
