Embrace Cultural Heritage
First Nations’ Cultural Heritage is Australia’s Cultural Heritage
Australia’s past is complex and often defined by conflict. But as a modern nation, we can all be proud of the First Nations culture that is so deeply embedded in this place we all call home. It is time to celebrate and protect our unique heritage as one.
First Nation’s cultural heritage is 65,000 years of culture and history that must be protected for all future generations, for all Australians and people the world over.
The damage to First Nations’cultural heritage is a systemic issue. The laws and policies in place to protect Aboriginal Cultural heritage are for the most part woefully inadequate – focused more on the regulation to facilitate destruction than the protection of heritage.
We urge and invite people from all backgrounds and all sections of Australian society to gather and support our call to collectively celebrate and protect Australia’s cultural heritage
