Ambassador for First Nations People

  • The Hon Linda Burney MP, Minister for Indigenous Australians
  • Senator Patrick Dodson, Special Envoy for Reconciliation and Implementation of the Uluru Statement from the Heart

    The Australian Government is seeking public expressions of interest from individuals to be considered for the Ambassador for First Nations People.

    The Government is delivering on its commitment to implement the Uluru Statement from the Heart in full, and embed Indigenous perspectives, experiences and interests into our foreign policy.

    Australia’s foreign policy should reflect our modern diversity and the rich heritage of First Nations people.

    The Ambassador will head an Office of First Nations Engagement within the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to listen to and work in genuine partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

    This is the first time an Ambassador position has been open to a public expression of interest, enabling qualified and interested individuals to apply.
