Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have been subjected to a range of government policies and practices, since colonisation of Australia which began in the late 1700s. In 1997, the Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Commission (HREOC) had submitted the Report of the National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from Their Families (the ‘Bringing them Home’, report) to the Australian Federal Government. The ‘Bringing them Home’ report made 54 recommendations about Australian policies and practices towards equal treatment of Australian Indigenous peoples. One such recommendation, (9b. ), requested “That all under-graduates and trainees in relevant professions receive, as part of their core curriculum,
Drew goes onto discuss how Australia was long content to import architectural styles from England, making the identification of the vernacular difficult in Australian Architecture. Many rural building practices were a continuation of colonised practices, only modified because of material or technical obstacles. However, Drew’s awareness of the vernacular frequently implies nationalism, creating an architecture that through everyday building practices, gives status of a regional symbol. Drew saw Murcutt partly responsible for an architecture that was recognisably Australian after a period he
The concept of family and kinship for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is to live within an extended family system. What this means is that they include distant relatives. Family is a fundamental part to an Aboriginal society because they are the ones that teach you how to live, how to interact with the land, and how to treat people. Aboriginal people rarely call their family members by name, instead they use relationship terms such as mother, sister, brother, aunt or cousin. Unlike western society who generally have a nuclear family unit, Aboriginal people place importance in belonging to a group and value conforming to the obligations and responsibilities of other group members.

Bringing Them Home Report Today, our society live freely by following our right and freedom, our rights to do and our freedom to say. However, Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders suffered and are still suffering through a long journey to be accepted in Australia as one. Different events occurred during the 90s to today, such as the Mabo decision, referendums and protests. The Bringing Them Home report was a significant event for the civil rights of Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islander people. The Bringing Them Home report was the result of a national inquiry that includes 680 pages created in 1997.
This could eventually even lead to a social reformation, with thousands of everyday citizens battling against injustices. Indigenous Australians will even have a say in what rights will be granted in the Bill of Rights. Indigenous Australians can expect more protection from the government, and a less-convoluted description of how their land is protected, and will have the safety of knowing that any injustices against them will be protected by the Australian Government. Overall, it’s obvious that having a Bill of Rights added to the Australian Constitution would be beneficial to the country as a whole. This is shown through the fact that the Bill of Rights would explicitly show Australian citizens the rights they’re entitled to.
