Today we explore aboriginal voices in education research in Australia. Australians will soon vote in a referendum about whether to change their Constitution to allow for the creation of an advisory body made up of First Nations peoples. This body would provide advice to the Parliament and the government on matters that impact indigenous communities. This is called The Voice.
