Polling released by The Australia Institute shows that a majority of voters support key recommendations put forward in the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
It has been one year since the Uluru Statement from the Heart, a declaration by the 2017 First Nations national Constitutional Convention.
The Australia Institute surveyed 1417 Australians in December 2017 with a series of questions about their attitudes towards the Uluru Statement.
The majority of respondents support (51%) starting a nation-wide process of agreement or treaty making between Australian governments and First Nations, with 26% opposed.
More than twice as many respondents supported (55%) than opposed (25%) the Uluru Statement’s recommendation for a Commission for truth-telling about the history of the treatment and experience of First Nations people in Australia under European settlement.
More respondents (46%) support enshrining a First Nations Voice in the Constitution, with 29% opposed, and 24% not sure.
