Voice, Treaty, Truth – 2023

As the year unfolds toward the referendum on an Indigenous Voice to Parliament, I’d like to share some resources that I have found helpful.

A trawloolway man from northern lutruwita (Tasmania), Rev Canon Dr Garry Deverell gives a very helpful lecture on the Uluru Statement and the design of the Voice.

Professor Anne Pattel-Gray, a descendant of the Bidjara / Kari Kari people of Queensland and a celebrated Aboriginal leader, makes a powerful call to the churches to support a ‘yes’ vote in the referendum on an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament.

Interview with Rev Canon Glenn Loughrey, ‘A Voice to Parliament, a voice to the church‘.
Glenn is a Wiradjuri man and a member of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican Council. He is also artist in residence at St Paul’s Cathedral in Melbourne. We are fortunate to have an artwork, Temptation with White Cockatoo by Glenn in our home.

The School of Indigenous Studies at the University of Divinity has a recommendations page: Voice, Treaty & Truth Resources.

As part of his Conversations at the Crossroads initiative, earlier this year Emeritus Professor Joe Camilleri organised a session on ‘Voice – Treaty – Truth Telling. What? When? How?’, with speakers Markus Stewart, First Peoples Assembly of Victoria, and Dr Tjanara Goreng Goreng.
