The Uluru Statement, created in 2017, is a rallying cry to enshrine First Nations’ voices in the Australian Constitution. Torres Strait Islander writer Thomas Mayor spent 18 months travelling across the country to garner support for the Statement – now, with Finding the Heart of the Nation, Mayor brings that journey to all Australians.

Mayor is joined by academic Megan Davis and lawyer Teela Reid to discuss what Black Lives Matter should mean in a land wrought by colonisation and in which First Nations’ sovereignty was never ceded, and the vital importance of the Uluru Statement in the fight for Indigenous rights.
