As part of my recognition of NAIDOC week (a national celebration of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples) this week’s song for Sunday is “Treaty” by Yothu Yindi from 1991.
This land was never given up
This land was never bought and sold
The planting of the union jack
Never changed our law at all
It was written in response to Prime Minister Bob Hawke’s failure to live up to his promise that the government would enter into a Treaty with Indigenous Australians by 1990.
