There were strong voices and opinions from Fitzroy Valley residents at the public parliamentary hearing of the Joint-Select Committee into Constitutional Recognition of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander People. The Committee held public hearings across the Kimberley Region of Western Australia, where community members shared how they are consulted by government & community organisations and how recognition & reconciliation look to them.
