In May 2017, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander delegates came together at the First Nations National Constitutional Convention near Uluru and adopted the Uluru Statement from the Heart. The Statement provides a roadmap for recognising First Nations in Australia’s Constitution, proposing structural reform on three fronts; Voice, Treaty and Truth. It followed a two-year deliberative dialogue designed and led by 13 First Nations Regional Dialogues and was adopted by 250 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander delegates. It seeks to establish a relationship between Australia’s First Nations peoples and the Australian nation based on truth, justice and self-determination to move forward towards reconciliation, without ceding sovereignty.
