Uluru Statement from the Heart Explainer Video (2019) is an educational resource produced by filmmaker Rachel Perkins and Law Professor Megan Davis. Its purpose is to assist teachers and students to understand the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
In 2017, Indigenous people gathered in Australia's spiritual heart: Uluru. They emerged from the National Constitutional Convention and offered the people of Australia the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
Voice, Makarrata (a Yolngu word for 'Treaty') and Truth are the three key elements of the aspirations and reforms set out in the Uluru Statement from the Heart. These reforms represent the unified position of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
For generations, Indigenous Australians have sought recognition of their unique place in Australian history and society. The Uluru Statement from the Heart builds on decades of consultation and discussions among Indigenous peoples.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have always wanted an enhanced role in decision-making in Australia's democracy, which the statement articulates as a 'Voice to Parliament'. The Uluru Statement reaffirms Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' desires for lasting and effective agreements such as treaties. Yet, treaties cannot be achieved unless we have a shared, truthful understanding of the nature of our history.
