The vision of reconciliation is a complex and sensitive matter and one of this countries most important national responsibilities. We believe true reconciliation requires the recognition of an aboriginal nation. We see the indigenous nation as being a nation within a nation. Sovereign to a point with independent values, beliefs and governance but not to the extent of independent laws, currency or geography. In the sense that we acknowledge aboriginal people as the traditional owners of this land we see the same circumstances applicable to the formal recognition of an indigenous nation.
