Kenny’s Journey from the Heart

Kenny’s Journey from the Heart

We have started a series featuring stories from you.

Our latest submission is from Kenny who is of the Meuram tribe of Erub. He works at a community development program contractor that supports remote and rural communities.

Here is Kenny’s journey from the Heart: 

“My elders and leaders before me have always fought for a representative voice and for our recognition as Torres Strait Islanders. The Uluru Statement from the Heart is a continuation of this determination to better manage our own affairs. The Statement appeals clearly to all Australians and offers a practical and empowering way forward, not only for our First Nation peoples but for all Australians.”
