Event description
Proclaiming South Australia’s Christian Foundation

About this Event

At this meeting aimed at senior high school students (but open to anyone) we will hear the text of the 1836 Proclamation of Governor John Hindmarsh recited with a loud and authoritative voice, as befits South Australia’s founding document.

As an explicitly Christian statement, the Proclamation is a succinct declaration of purpose that calls for a gracious and benevolent care for South Australia’s indigenous people. It urged the pioneer colonists to promote aboriginal advancement and to encourage the indigenous people towards faith in Christ.

Guest speaker Professor Stuart Piggin will explain the background to that most enlightened declaration while FamilyVoice National Secretary David d’Lima will describe how the Proclamation may be applied to the on-going process of reconciliation with our beloved indigenous people.
