Start the conversation about Constituitional recognition at your school. South Australia has achieved a momentous step forward in reconciliation by recognising Aboriginal peoples as the traditional owners and occupants of the land and waters; it's time for the rest of Australia to follow. The Australian Constitution does not recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. For more information about Constitutional recognition, visit Recognise. You can access the Recognise School Learning Guide here.
Recognise Youth Ambassadors:
Recognise has put together a team of Youth Ambassadors, aged 15-25, who are able to talk to schools and classrooms about the importance of constitutional recognition, the referendum process, key elements of the public debate and the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social and political movements towards recognition. For more information, contact Jo or Nioka at Recognise, or contact us at Reconciliation SA.
