The contribution of Aboriginal Australians has shaped our knowledge of the country and our identity. All Australians benefit from the generosity of Aboriginal people sharing their Country and their culture.
The Australian Institute of Social Relations acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians; their spiritual, physical, emotional, mental and economic connection to the Land and Seas, and apologises for the atrocities that have been perpetrated on them and their ancestors, and recognises the continued impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians today.
We are committed to an ongoing process of reconciliation and will actively engage in redressing inequitable distributions of the physical, spiritual and political economy, in regards to Australian Indigenous issues.
The Australian Institute of Social Relations recognises and acknowledges that dispossession of Country, and the disruption to family connections has resulted in a breakdown of social networks created through Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australian’s Knowledge, Law and Culture. We also recognise the continuous intergenerational impact of the history of invasion, policies and legislation.
Reconciliation SA provides information about the history and implications of Indigenous and non-Indigenous relations in our country, with a South Australian focus on reconciliation.
The Recognise campaign is the driving force behind the push to have Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people recognised in the Australian constitution.
This campaign invites all Australians to reflect on what they can do to counter racism wherever it happens.
