BHP And Rio Tinto Support Uluru Statement From The Heart

BHP and Rio Tinto have endorsed the Uluru Statement from the Heart and its objectives to enshrine a First Nation’s Voice in the Australian constitution, and to also establish a Makarrata Commission.

The Uluru Statement from the Heart is a national Indigenous statement on constitutional recognition that came out of the First Nations National Constitutional Convention in May 2017.

The statement followed robust consultation at 13 regional forums across Australia featuring 1200 delegates. It was the most proportionately significant consultation process undertaken to date with the nation’s 600 000 Indigenous Australians.
