Two former high court justices and constitutional experts have thrown their support behind the importance of a First Nations Voice to parliament.
First, change the constitution. Then, negotiate the detailed design of the First Nations voice to parliament: this is the only way to bring about meaningful reform.
For First Nations peoples to recover from the multiple harms of settler colonialism, they must take control of the services they need, free from the control and interference of the settler state.
The final report on constitutional recognition is disappointing in many respects, but Labor's pledge to establish a First Nations voice will give many in the community hope.
