The Voice to Parliament: lessons from South Australia

26 May @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm AEST

On 26 March 2023, a special sitting of the South Australian Parliament passed its First Nations Bill, becoming the first state in Australia to pass legislation to implement a First Nations Voice to Parliament.

The legislation proposed “a connected, direct and independent line of communication for First Nations people to South Australia’s Parliament and the government, to allow important, shared communication by locally elected regional members”.

As the conversation around the national Voice to Parliament accelerates, we are joined by SA Attorney General and Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Kyam Maher to explore how the State Parliament and Indigenous communities came together to pass the First Nations Bill and the tangible benefits for communities in South Australia.


Reconciliation Australia acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that this website contains images or names of people who have passed away.
