International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples

Today, 9 August 2023, we celebrate the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples. Australia endorsed the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in 2009. Since then, in international forums, Australia has committed to take actions to implement this Declaration and promote indigenous people's enjoyment of rights on an equal basis. The Uluru Statement from The Heart, the recognition of our First Nations in our Constitution and the enactment of the Voice to Parliament are in line with our international commitment. Let's all play our part. Click here to learn more about what you can do ahead of the Referendum.
