Kimberley Kriol: The Uluru Statement from the Heart

Source: Jimmy Widders Hunt

Kriol is a​n English-based creole language spoken across the north of Australia, from Western Australia into the Northern Territory and part of Queensland. The spelling of the name is a version of ‘Creole’. There are many ​creole languages spoken. Creoles developed out of pidgin English ​that came into being as a result of colonisation. The ​creoles spoken across the north of Australia var​y from east to west and there are several dialects, even within the Kimberley region. ​

 

In May 2017, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander delegates came together at the First Nations National Constitutional Convention near Uluru and presented the Uluru Statement from the Heart to the Australian people. The Statement calls for a First Nations Voice to Parliament, enshrined in the constitution, and a process for agreement making (Treaty) and truth-telling. It was the culmination of 13 deliberative Regional Dialogues across Australia with First Nations communities. The Statement seeks to establish a relationship between Australia's First Nations peoples and the Australian nation based on truth, justice and self-determination. Music by Frank Yamma.
