Entrapment by the Statement from the Heart

Noel Pearson with the Uluru Statement signed at the convention but the wording arrived later

First Nations' affairs are in a deep abyss because there is a lack of common purpose, fueled by misinformation and spin, which leads to the risk of entrapment into an assimilation push that negates our First Nations sovereignty. The First Nations Voice to Parliament clause will be "non justiciable" so if the government refuses to listen to the 'Voice' or constitutes the Voice in a way that's not democratic or whatever there will be no recourse to the courts. It quite literally creates no constitutional rights: "Modest and substantive ". [node:read-more:link]

Early 19th century map of Australia and New Zealand

This report tabled in the British House of Commons in 1837 is very telling on the attitudes and information received on the state of their colonies. The report for New Holland (now known as Australia) begins here:

'Over Cooked': Is Captain Cook the source of British sovereignty in Australia?

The story of Lieutenant James Cook and British Sovereignty over Australia has been overcooked. At no time on any of Cook's three voyages to the Pacific was he intending to go anywhere near New Holland. He did chart the east coast of New Holland in 1770, but that was not part of his Instructions. The whole story about Cook and his association with the claim of British Sovereignty over the lands now known as Australia is retrospective, rather than consistent with the events of the time. Cook's initial "mission" was to get to Tahiti to study the Transit of Venus, and to then look for the fabled Great Southern Land, Terra Australis. [node:read-more:link]
