CRT2108 Using the Uluru statement from the heart
In 2017, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders gathered at Uluru on the lands of the Anangu people. Their deliberations led to the Uluru Statement from the Heart which called for a ‘First Nations Voice’ in the Australian Constitution and a ‘Makarrata Commission’ between governments and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Teachers across Australia can play an important role in leading students and children toward understanding the Uluru Statement. This session aims to increase your knowledge of the Statement and suggest ways that you can incorporate the ideas from the Statement into your teaching. The session will also provide an insight into the Imagination Declaration 2019 that was developed by the Youth Representative Council at the 2019 Garma Festival.
