Minimal constitutional reform won't wash with First Peoples

Minimal constitutional reform won't wash with First Peoples
- Minimalist constitutional reform now has no chance of winning the backing of indigenous Australia, with the latest referendum dialogue in Adelaide concluding that a “once-in-a-generation opport­unity” for meaningful change must not be wasted.
The Adelaide gathering aligned with the conclusions of nine previous meetings nationwide, including that a constitu­tionally guaranteed indigenous parliamentary body must be created­ to have a say in policy and lawmaking that affects Aborigin­al and Torres Strait Islander Australians.
Adelaide delegates said this body should be properly repre­sentative, not hand-picked, and based on indigenous land carrying traditional songlines.
