Description

Soon we will all decide if and how indigenous Australians will be recognised in the constitution. In this essential book, several leading indigenous writers and thinkers provide a road map to recognition. These eloquent essays show what constitutional recognition means, and what it could make possible- a fairer relationship and a renewed appreciation of an ancient culture. With remarkable clarity and power, they traverse law, history and culture to map the path to change. Contributors to A Rightful Place are Noel Pearson, Stan Grant, Rachel Perkins, Galarrwuy Yunupingu, Pat Dodson, Rod Little and Jackie Huggins. The book is edited by Shireen Morris, a lawyer and constitutional reform fellow at the Cape York Institute and researcher at Monash University. oThe day we come to regard ourselves as people with a distinct heritage, with distinct cultures and languages but not of a distinct race, will be a day of psychological liberation. And it will also be liberating for those in the wider community.o Noel Pearson oa watershed moment for this country, a call for us to deal with unfinished business that tarnishes our nation a a landmark essayo Patricia Karvelas, The Australian
