I found myself getting very emotional when I watched the first ad encouraging Australians to talk about an Indigenous Voice to Parliament.
Released by the Uluru Statement it’s part of an education campaign called “History is Calling” and urges ordinary Australians to start conversations about the Uluru Statement from the Heart and vote “yes” for a First Nations Voice to Parliament.
The ad features proud Pitjantjatjara and Nyungar man Trevor Jamieson telling children a story about how a Voice to Parliament was achieved with the support of Australians.
Women got the vote in Australia in 1894 but it was not until 1962 that Indigenous people were granted the right to vote!
