Beyond Victims – the challenge of indigenous leadership


There is a need for both a new approach to indigenous leadership and a new relationship with the First Peoples of Australia, based on respect and high expectations, argues Aboriginal leader, Dr Chris Sarra.  He believes we must find a better way to recognise and value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.  Leadership is required that asks intelligent questions, demands meaningful answers and builds effective outcomes, especially if the proposed constitutional amendment is to make a meaningful impact on the lives of all Australians.
