Finding the Heart of the nation

Author Thomas Mayor

Publisher: Hardie Grant Books

This is a book for all Australians.

Since the Uluru Statement from the Heart was formed in 2017, Thomas Mayor has travelled around the country to promote its vision of a better future for Indigenous Australians. He’s visited communities big and small, often with the Uluru Statement canvas rolled up in a tube under his arm.

Thomas believes that we will only find the heart of our nation when the First peoples – the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders – are recognised with a representative Voice enshrined in the Australian Constitution.

“Thomas’s compelling work is full of Australian Indigenous voices that should be heard. Read this book, listen to them, and take action.”– Danny Glover, actor and humanitarian.
