CULTURE AND THE ARTS—CULTURAL HERITAGE

Senator Madigan, pursuant to notice of motion not objected to as a formal motion, moved general business notice of motion no. 534—That, in light of the fact that the Australian Parliament, on behalf of the Australian people, has rightly recognised the cultural heritage of the Indigenous members of our community and identified the importance of their historic connection to the land on which we all live, the Senate recognises that there are other Australian communities which also have a cultural heritage which comes from their connection, over generations, to the district and environment which they have inhabited and from which they have created an identity which is passed on to future generations of those communities.
