Appendix 2

The Barunga Statement was presented by Galurrwuy Yunupingu, Chairperson of the NLC, to Prime Minister Hawke in June 1988 at the Barunga Festival. It set out the Aboriginal agenda for treaty negotiations.


The Barunga Statement

We, the indigenous owners and occupiers of Australia, call on the Australian Government and people to recognise our rights:

To self determination and self-management, including the freedom to pursue our own economic, social, religious and cultural development;

To permanent control and enjoyment of our ancestral lands;

To compensation for the loss of use of our lands, there having been no extinction of original title;

To protection of and control of access to our sacred sites, sacred objects, artefacts, designs, knowledge and works of art;

To the return of the remains of our ancestors for burial in accordance with our traditions;

To respect for and promotion of our Aboriginal identity, including the cultural, linguistic, religious and historical aspects, and including the right to be educated in our own languages and in our own culture and history;

In accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the International Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination, Rights to Life, Liberty, Security of Person, Food, Clothing, Housing, Medical Care, Education and Employment Opportunities, necessary Social Services and other basic rights.
