Do you support recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by changing the Constitution or making some other kind of legal change?

Add recognition and protection of their rights.
Should we have a statement that acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia?
Yes. This should be in the Constitution.
Should the word 'race' be taken out of the Constitution?

There is no "race" other than the "human race".
Do you have any other comments on powers to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
Yes, a kind of "positive discrimination" could be useful in address the historical imbalance.
Do you think that a guarantee against racial discrimination should go into the Constitution?
I don't know
If there is not enough support for a guarantee in the Constitution, what other things can we do to stop racial discrimination in national laws?
Race laws are perhaps the best place for that?
Do you have any other comments on changing the Constitution to stop racial discrimination?
Although this may work well, as in combating gender discrimination.
Do you think Indigenous people should have a say when Parliament and government make laws and policies about Indigenous affairs?
Do you have any other comments on this Indigenous group?
Yes, they are a special group which need a special voice.
Should we delete section 25?
I don't know
What would we achieve by getting rid of section 25?
