As non-Indigenous allies, we have work to do. Here is a list of resources that we've found useful in doing this work.



The Equality Institute acknowledges the traditional custodians of country across Australia, and we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded - this was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.

We would also like to acknowledge that we are a non-Indigenous organisation, we cannot speak for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. These are resources that we have found useful in our learning as non-Indigenous allies.

This list is by no means exhaustive - we are not experts on these matters, nor do we speak on behalf of any group. We would like to highlight important Indigenous resources including Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS), The Uluru Statement and Common Ground.

We acknowledge the work that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and people have done, and continue to do, and we would like to champion their work first and foremost.

As allies, we continue to learn and aim to always improve in the work we do and we welcome any and all feedback. If you have any feedback you'd like to share, please contact us at
