On October 14, Australians will vote in a referendum regarding the establishment of an Indigenous Voice to Parliament, aiming to give Indigenous people a say in government policies that affect their lives. The referendum seeks to enshrine this mechanism in the Constitution, but there are concerns about how the Voice’s powers might be interpreted, and opinions on the matter are divided within Australia.

Australian Aboriginals are the Indigenous peoples of Australia, with a history dating back over 65,000 years. They have a rich cultural heritage, with diverse languages, art, and traditions. Despite facing historical injustices and ongoing challenges, they have contributed significantly to Australia’s cultural identity.
