The Uluru Statement from the Heart was a national Indigenous consensus position on Indigenous constitutional recognition. The statement called for the establishment of a ‘First Nations Voice’ in the Australian Constitution and the establishment of a ‘Makarrata Commission’ to supervise a process of agreement-making and truth-telling between governments and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
