Join us on Wednesday 13th November for a National call to action - Wajampa kurlu - A Rally for Kumanjayi Walker
The history of our nation deeply affects the present and our future.
For over 60,000 years, 300 Aboriginal nations with over 600 dialects of language dwelt on the continent we now call Australia. Over 2,000 generations of Aboriginal people lived and died here.
In 1770 Captain Cook landed on Possession Island and began the dangerous story of Australia, which for Aboriginal peoples is filled with dispossession, disease, death and ongoing disadvantage.
As Christians we know the reach of sin, how it smothers its way into everything. All Australians are harmed by what has happened to Aboriginal Australians.
Only together, with lament and grief, apologies and forgiveness, friendship and solidarity, can we build a strong reconciled Australia.
Traditional burial rites are currently under threat for Aboriginal peoples in the Northern Territory. The 2019 Burial and Cremation Bill is currently before the NT Parliament and if passed, would criminalise anyone who performs traditional burials outside a cemetery and without bureaucratic approval.
As Brooke Prentis travels to the sacred place that is Uluru, she calls us to walk softly, gently and slowly on these lands as we listen to the Creator's story.
Today is National Wattle Day! National Wattle Day has been celebrated across Australia on 1 September since 1992. To celebrate National Wattle Day we hear from Allison Dawn Waterhouse.
