Edmund Rice Centre: Uluru Statement from the Heart resources


The Uluru Statement from the Heart is written as an invitation to the people of Australia, to come together with First Nations Peoples to achieve constitutional recognition and structural reform in the relationship between the Commonwealth Government and Indigenous Peoples through Voice, Treaty and Truth. The aspirations of First Nations Peoples are for a fair, truthful, and reconciled relationship between First Nations and the people of Australia.
