INDIGENOUS AUSTRALIANS—NATIONAL ABORIGINAL AND ISLANDER CHILDREN'S DAY

Senator Siewert, pursuant to notice of motion not objected to as a formal motion, moved general business notice of motion no. 844—That the Senate—

 (a) acknowledges that Sunday, 4 August 2010 is National Aboriginal and Islander Children's Day;

 (b) recognises that the theme for 2010 is `Value My Culture, Value Me' which emphasises that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children need to know they are loved and valued, and to have every opportunity to nurture and explore a healthy and strong sense of self and community; and

 (c) embraces the message of `Value My Culture, Value Me' by undertaking to promote new attitudes and forging a new pathway of understanding for the benefit of all Australians, build and improve relationships based on mutual respect, end disadvantage for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families and create equality for all in the broader Australian community.

Question put and passed.
