Uluru Statement from the Heart in Auslan

SBS Radio - in consultation with the Uluru Dialogue, Indigenous Law Centre UNSW - is sharing the Uluru Statement from the Heart in various languages to continue the national dialogue. For the first time, this podcast collection includes more than 20 Aboriginal languages (from communities in the Northern Territory and from Northern Western Australia), which will continue to grow as more First Nations languages are translated. The collection also includes more than 60 languages for Australia’s Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities. The Uluru Statement from the Heart is an invitation to the Australian people to walk with First Nations peoples to create a better future. 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.
