Aboriginal people in South Australia are back on the political agenda following the removal of the Marshall Liberal Government and the push for state based voice, treaty and truth by new Labor Premier Peter Malinauskas.
Mr Malinauskas opened his victory speech by acknowledging he was on Aboriginal land…. saying that for the first time in the history of the state an initiated Aboriginal man will lead Aboriginal affairs.
I think there is,quite rightly as there should be, a big expectation from Aboriginal people on what Labor is going to do- Kyam Maher.
Kyam Maher who served as South Australian Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation in the Weatherall Labor Government says the new Premier is committed to the process of truth, treaty and a voice. Speaking on CAAMA Radio Mr Maher said Aboriginal people have to be at the forefront of driving and designing the policies that will impact them into the future.
