The road to constitutional recognition
Over the past few months, the Referendum Council has hosted 12 regional dialogues around Australia to give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people a chance to say what meaningful recognition is to them. They also held an information day in Canberra.
This process culminated in a First Nations Convention at Uluru on 23-26 May. The Convention was a historic moment in our Nation’s history; for the first time Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are leading the conversation.
The Council will now report to the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition on views captured in the consultation process and how the Constitution might best be changed. This report is due for submission by 30 June 2017.
