Learn more about Aboriginal recognition
The Australian constitution does not currently reference Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The federal government created a council to explore holding a referendum on the subject in May 2017. Proponents, including Prime Minister Turnbull, argue that the original inhabitants of Australia should be recognized in the constitution and all racial elements should be removed. Opponents argue that the government resources should not be wasted on holding a referendum. See recent aboriginal news

They should recognise all religions and cultures but provide no benefit for any as we are all Australian. 3 years ago from a Green in Sydney
No, Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders are Australian, thus I would argue they are recognized and represented, even if not by name. The constitution doesn't need to change. 3 years ago from a Democrat in Melbourne
