Summary It is a collection of short essays by leading and emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander thinkers and leaders. Edited by and including contributions from Megan Davis and Marcia Langton, it conveys to Australians why indigenous peoples should have a direct say in the decisions that affect their lives. Australia is one of the only liberal democracies still grappling with fundamental questions about the place of indigenouspeoples, unlike its common law cousins Canada, the United States and New Zealand. It's Our Country articulates why constitutional accommodation of indigenous peoples is important for a nation that is home to the oldest continuous civilisation on earth.
