Why do we exist ?
Australians for Native Title and Reconciliation (ANTaR) is an independent, national network of mainly non-Indigenous organisations and individuals working in support of justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia.
ANTaR receives no Federal financial assistance and remains fiercely independent and non-party-political.
ANTaR has a close and unique working relationship with Indigenous leaderships. ANTaR's purpose has always been to support Indigenous people speaking for themselves, rather than to speak for Indigenous people.
What do we do ?
ANTaR coordinates a major community education and awareness campaign on a range of issues to improve the rights of Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islanders.
Central to ANTaR's activities is the Sea of Hands. Over 300,000 Australians have put their signatures on a hand in the Sea of Hands and helped in its installation in locations around Australia. In 2007, ANTaR launched a virtual Sea of Hands so that people could add their name in support for Indigenous issues.
ANTaR works on many levels to achieve its goals. This includes maintaining close liaison with Indigenous leaderships and communities and assisting them to communicate their aspirations and concerns to the wider community; conducting national education and awareness campaigns on Indigenous affairs issues, and fundraising activities of various kinds
What opportunities do we have for young people ?
