The Cost of Colonisation by Natalie Cromb

"The effects of this trespass (effectively, theft) of Indigenous land has been hugely profitable for the Australian government, but utterly devastating for the Indigenous people of Australia. Indigenous peoples have suffered a devastating 80 per cent population loss since this event, and 229 years later – in the absence of any real measures to address the past and present injustices – the devastation remains and is freely seen by anyone who looks."

'The Constitutional Recognition forum has after three days come to a final position that will see a treaty commission established and a truth and justice style commission established with Constitutional reform no longer a priority.'

"That's what they've chosen rather than some sort of nice words of acknowledgement." more

The Uluru statement reflects long-held Indigenous aspirations. But, in rejecting symbolic constitutional recognition, it puts pressure on Australia’s political leaders.

Murrawarri Nation believe the suggested process is wrong and it needs to be changed from a Reform and Recognition process leading to a Treaty to an Agreement Making Process I.E. Treaty, then Constitutional Reform and Recognition.
Dark Emu - Most important historical record of Australia since all time!
Dark Emu - describes “scenes all around the country of Aboriginal people engineering sophisticated dwellings and irrigation systems. They also describe the cultivation of vast areas of land for yam fields; and the harvesting, storage and milling of grain crops.”

It is the most important historical record reflecting colonial  'ambivalence' toward Aboringinal life-quality through organised agriculture and their pre-colonial community life-style.

What does the word 'confederation' mean?

"By definition the difference between a confederation and a federation is that the membership of the member states in a confederation is voluntary, while the membership in a federation is not."
And there's considerations,  research & ideas about Democracy vs. Republic



The concept of Treaty/Treaties was presented in 1987 to draw attention to the fact that Aboriginal sovereignty has never been ceded to the British Crown or the Australian Commonwealth government.

Kevin Gillberts ground-breaking book resonates in the contemporary era as a foundation stone to the Sovereignty Movement, by casting a web around the fundamental legal argument that sovereignty has never been ceded by First Nations and Peoples in the land now known as Australia. There is a viable pathway for recovery from the ongoing genocidal onslaught.

His book is well researched work provides an uncomplicated definitive legal argument based on international law and clarifies the concept of pre-existing and continuing sovereignty. Download this ibook from iTunes (free) or as a pdf file here.


Addressing History: The problem with the Australian Government proposals of Constitutional recognition is that the process is selective, upside down and inside out because it is discounting the marginalised, informal networks among First Nations people who are excluded from mainstream political discourse and who have no funds to voice their concerns  about "why" treaty first is a most logical and correct agenda to embark IF anything about Constitutional recognition is authentic.

Twitter #treatyfirst if you see establishing a criteria with and between First Nations people in Australia is a critical step forward for Australian's everywhere as part of their claim to Sovereignty for the Unity of tribes within this nation we call Australia.

As Yingiya Guyula, a senior Yolngu elder from Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory says; "dismissing constitutional recognition as a toothless tiger".
