Edition 48 of Reconciliation News brings you stories of community-driven success, excellence and self-determination; in Indigenous-led organisations, sports, schools and in Government. 

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-control is the under the spotlight this October edition of Reconciliation News.

With features on the winners and highly-commended organisations of the 2022 Indigenous Governance Awards, we take a look at what can be achieved when Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations lead the way for their communities. 

And community control on the national stage: Professor Peter Yu AM explains why a referendum on a Voice to Parliament is opportunity we cannot afford to miss. 

Biripi principal of Briar Road Public School in NSW, Tammy Anderson, exemplifies what can be achieved when community members take the lead in educational settings.

This edition’s cover features the late Uncle Archie Roach – who’s indedible legacy is explored by the Murrawarri and Filipino hip hop artist and composer Rhyan Clampham, AKA DOBBY.

Speaking of a legacy, this edition features a story from Nakari Thorpe  on the long journey of the Koori Knockout and its enduring role bringing community together as a new exhibition looks at the history of the ‘modern day corroboree’.
