In Conversation - The Uluru Statement from the Heart

In Conversation: Thomas Mayor

The historic constitutional moment created by the Uluru Statement from the Heart

Two years ago, a gathering of around 300 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders signed the Uluru Statement. The statement is a proposal of constitutional reform that would establish a constitutionally enshrined First Nations representative body to advise parliament on policy affecting Indigenous peoples and commit Australia to a process of truth-telling of its colonial history through the establishment of a Makarrata commission.

Thomas Mayor is a Zenadth Kes (Torres Strait Islander) man born and living on Larrakia country (Darwin).  Thomas was a delegate at the Convention and is now touring the country as the current custodian of the Uluru Statement, talking about its significance to regional and metropolitan communities.

He is a former President of the Northern Territory Trades and Labour Council, and he now works on secondment to the Construction Forestry Maritime Mining and Energy Union, campaigning for the proposals set out in the Uluru Statement from the Heart, and focusing on building power for First Nations people in the workplace and in the broader community.
