Do you support recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by changing the Constitution or making some other kind of legal change?
What should the change look like?
Not sure. Some people will seek to exploit any words so much better legal minds than mine are required
Should we have a statement that acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia?
Yes. This should be in the Constitution.
Where is the best place to put it?
What should the statement say?
Along the lines that there was settlement in what we now call Australia before Europeans settled here

Remove any reference to particular races
