A Victorian delegate who attended the Uluru summit for the Constitutional Recognition of First Nations people says she feels like she was set up and the Referendum Council hasn’t been transparent with our mob.

The three day event took place at Uluru last week following 12 regional dialogues around the country.

Gurnai/Gundditjmara woman Lidia Thorpe was a part of a group who walked out of proceedings on day two of the summit stating they were not given the chance to voice their opinion.

Ms Thorpe says the Recognise Council has not informed our mob well enough to make decisions on the matter.


The group who walked out reportedly attracted threats from other First Nations people which Ms Thorpe blames on the council’s processes.
