Synopsis

'An engaging, Aboriginal storytelling-style essay [that] argues clearly why the Voice will benefit First Nations people and the Australian nation.' - PROFESSOR PETER YU AM, Vice-President (First Nations), Australian National UniversityKimberley-born Indigenous business leader Charles Prouse has spent 30 years working in Indigenous affairs across the corporate, government and non-profit sectors. He's been asked many times how to fix 'the Aboriginal situation'. He's also been asked about the Voice to Parliament. It can be a complex question to answer, but it can also be as simple as listening, having compassion and trusting that together we can do this.This book doesn't explain every single challenge and every single solution, there are websites and factsheets for that. What it gives us is the human perspective.Rather than being ostriches with our heads in the sand, Charles Prouse urges all Australians to be nosey emus and investigate with open hearts and minds what the Voice to Parliament will mean for our country, and why it's so important to vote Yes.'A fresh, honest perspective on why the Voice matters from Derby, WA, to Sydney and beyond. Makes practical sense of what some are seeking to politicise.' - TANYA HOSCH, Executive General Manager, Inclusion and Social Policy, AFL'A must-read conversation from a grassroots Aboriginal man about the importance of being informed about the Yes vote, time to start the journey for change.' - WAYNE BERGMANN, Managing Director, Leedal Foundation
