Aboriginal and Indigenous Reconciliation

Australians for Native Title and Reconciliation(ANTaR)is a non-profit organization which has struggled to overcome the disadvantages of Indigenous Peoples of Australia.

It has done this through use of lobbying, public campaigns and advocacy.
It attempts to change the attitudes of non-indigenous peoples so that indigenous culture and peoples can be respected and affirmed.

Strives for a moral and formal recongognition of the distinctive status of Aborigibals and people of the Torres Strait as first peoples.
ANTaR has been working with Indigenous organisations and leaders on rights and reconciliation issues since 1997
