Sea of Hands Statement: Respect, Negotiation and Coexistence
“I believe that genuine Reconciliation can only be achieved by seeking agreement between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians about its outcomes. This will require genuine, good faith negotiations between Indigenous Australians and the Federal Government to achieve reforms that recognise and protect the rights of Indigenous Australians, including native title rights recognised in the High Court Mabo and Wik decisions.
Negotiations will strengthen a sense of national unity, reduce conflict and increase certainty – benefits which can only be obtained by respecting the legitimate rights of Indigenous Australians. Negotiation is fundamental to coexistence and the achievement of Reconciliation for our country.”
