THE ULURU STATEMENT FROM THE HEART

The Uluru Statement from the Heart has been awarded the Sydney Peace Prize. This landmark statement was formed via an agreement of 250 Indigenous delegates. It calls for a constitutionally-enshrined Indigenous Voice to Parliament and was issued to Australians on 26 May, 2017. You can read about how the statement came into being in books found below.

A FLOOD ALONG THE RIVER OF DREAMS

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Bila Yarrudhanggalangdhuray makes a worthy addition to the fine Indigenous novels that are appearing on the shelves these days. Heiss, who has shown herself to be an accomplished writer, has produced her best ever with this historical novel set on the Murrumbidgee in the nineteenth century.

Life is changing for the proud Wiradyuri (Heiss' preferred spelling) people of the river country, and Wagadhaany finds herself the servant of an ambitious colonial family. They may control her way of living, but they do not control her heart. When the settlement of Gundagai is flooded in 1852, her life is altered still further, and she is taken away from her country by a well-meaning Quaker mistress, who in wanting to do the right thing doesn't consider if it is right by the Indigenous people she wants to assist.

Always yearning for her place, Wagadhaany nonetheless carries on with strength, courage and grace, and finds love with Yindyamarra, a fine Wiradyuri man, employed as a stockman and so no freer than she is, to follow his own inclinations.

A novel that shows the disruption and cruelty of colonialism, but celebrates the enduring culture of the Wiradyuri and the indomitable spirit of a brave woman. Lindy

KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING, RESPECT

NAIDOC WEEK 2021 had the theme of HEAL COUNTRY! NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920's which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

There's a momentum that has gathered pace in recent times, with people continuing to expand their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of Australia's long history. With that realisation, we will begin to make demands of our leaders to formally acknowledge that history in our nation's foundation documents, governance and in our children's schooling.

A new Australian identity will emerge that fully embraces our indigenous beginnings alongside our later development through colonialism and immigration - expanding the lens on our nation's history for a fully inclusive and rich cultural heritage that is intrinsic and celebrated by the whole nation.

FINDING A WAY FORWARD

WESLEY ENOCH, QUANDAMOOKA
Transcript from ABC television broadcast, 7.30

"January 26 fills me with a lot of trepidation. I feel a bit fearful because it is also a moment where I'm reminded that the country wants to forget me.

It keeps saying that, "This is the most important story, the arrival of the First Fleet is the most important story that defines our nation." And I know it is different than that.

I reckon that as Australians, we have a real identity problem. We think that we're young and scrappy and we're lucky. Where in fact, we should be elders on the world stage.

We have the oldest living culture on earth and it is here in this landscape and the more we think that we can learn from Indigenous Australia rather than thinking of it as a deficit model then I think we'll have an Australia Day that is more important and embraced by everyone.

I reckon we spend a lot of energy saying, "Change the date. Change the date." When in fact the energy needs to be change the minds and hearts of Australians.

Let's have a voice to parliament. Let's talk about treaty. Let's talk about sovereignty. Let's make permanent changes that actually help us all grow as Australians.

We need to build some identity that is from deep within and it starts with our relationship with this country, our relationship with the First Peoples and then this idea of how we can work together to make structural change and not just the window dressing."
