As I wear this Desert Pea (if you have one)
I pledge my loyalty
to the recognition and sovereignty
of all First Peoples

with all my thoughts, words and actions.
May be said with or without the words, “under God.”

Working together with Reconciliation Tasmania the RSL and Elders have honoured both Aboriginal and Torres Strait military deaths alongside those who died during the Colonial Era Conflicts on country.
Planning for a Colonial Era Conflicts State Memorial is progressing.
While respecting the national significance of ANZAC Day the Elders were invited to sit with Governor Kate Warner.
Making Peasce was invited to Hobart by the Elders to support the respectful memorial design using local floral emblems and traditions.
