We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands where our work takes us, in particular Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Country where our head office is located. We pay respect to all First Nations Elders past, present and emerging and we recognise the continuous connection to Country, community and culture of First Nations people.
The Uluru Statement from the Heart is a momentous Indigenous statement on constitutional recognition that came out of the First Nations National Constitutional Convention in May 2017. Frontier Advisors supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart and its objectives to enshrine a First Nations Voice in the Australian constitution and to also establish a Makarrata Commission. The Makarrata word from the Yolngu People in Arnhem Land means two parties coming together after a struggle, healing of division of the past – acknowledging that something has been done wrong and seeking to make things right.
We recognise the Uluru Statement from the Heart as an historic mandate to create a fuller expression of Australia’s nationhood. We call on our people and our industry colleagues to join in this important national dialogue in a movement of all Australian people for a better future. We believe now is the moment for all Australians to create a foundation for a strong national identity by creating a bond between an ancient past and a hopeful future.
We are proud to support the Indigenous Literacy Foundation as our chosen corporate charitable organisation. We recognise the important roles that language and storytelling have for culture and community and, given the area in which Frontier operates, the importance of developing literacy skills for financial awareness and engagement. https://www.indigenousliteracyfoundation.org.au/
