Do you support recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by changing the Constitution or making some other kind of legal change?
What should the change look like?
The change should appear as a new section in the Constitution to cover all aspects of the recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
Should we have a statement that acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia?
Yes. This should be in the Constitution.
Where is the best place to put it?
This should be in the new section allocated to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, in the Constitution.
What should the statement say?
The statement should unconditionally recognise the existence of, and the rights of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in and beyond the 21st Century, without discrimination.
Do you have any other comments on a statement about the First Peoples of Australia?
Should the word 'race' be taken out of the Constitution?

Do you have any other comments on powers to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?

Is it worth creating the new group if it can only give advice and does not have the power to block new laws?
Do you have any ideas about what the new group would look like?
The new group should be given the power to advise and submit information that affects the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
Do you have any other comments on this Indigenous group?
If Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders expect to be recognised they must integrate into the society of modern Australia. We must all unite and not divide any of the diverse communities in Australia.
Should we delete section 25?
What would we achieve by getting rid of section 25?
Is there any point in keeping it?
For reasons of National Security and public safety.
Do you have any other comments?
If Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are to be taken seriously in their quest to be 'Recognised", it would be beneficial to all to educate them in all in the facts about Australia Day or "Invasion Day". As a well known aboriginal woman tried to point
