The Yindyamarra Pledge for Democracy
The first people touched this land as our continent was being formed.
They came in boats when the rest of humanity had yet to cross an open sea. Here they formed a civilisation that continues to this day.
Their birthright has never been ceded.
Those people live still in their descendants.
With their grace and generosity, we enter into their heritage and respect their traditions.
We honour too those who have come from other lands and carry with them their cultures and faiths.
Though our bonds may strain, we seek to live together in harmony. Though we may disagree, we find no enemy among us.
We cherish the foundations of our nation, and our rule of law and democracy.
In so doing we commit to fulfilling our democracy’s promise.
It cannot speak to us all while ever it does not speak to all of us.
We abide by the democratic will of the majority but defend the rights of the minority.
We are all equal in dignity.
Opportunity is for all.
Worth should be measured not in privilege.
By our efforts we should prosper. In a land of plenty, we must care for those without.
From the first footsteps to the most recent arrival, this land is our home.
There can be no other.
Here, today, we come together as a people formed by our history yet not bound by history’s chains but committed to forge a just union.
In this spirit we offer the Yindyamarra pledge for democracy. A gift from the Wiradjuri people to all people.
Yindyamarra: Respect. Kindness. Quiet. Justice.
Yindyamarra Winhanganha: to live with respect in a world worth living in.

The objective of this fund is to support a researcher from this war-torn country and support them to continue their important research in safety from the turmoil at home.
Regional Impact Fund: This fund is aimed at helping students from our regions achieve their dreams of a higher education degree. This support also helps our local communities fill the skill shortages felt in regional areas by retaining our best and brightest.
