Recognising all who served their country: Naming the forgotten soldiers.
Many thousands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander service men and women have fought for our country from the Boer War onwards. A common passion and love for this country is where differences were set aside and cultures were united. Unfortunately the stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander diggers are rarely acknowledged in the fabric of Australian history.The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Dedicate Memorial Queensland Incorporated has been formed with the support of Griffith University to ensure that the sacrifices of these men and women are recognised and these heroes are honoured.
The Association's primary objective is to design, manufacture and install a war memorial in ANZAC Square, Brisbane to honour, respect and remember Queensland's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women who have served and those who have paid the supreme sacrifice for our country. The memorial will be gifted to the Queensland State Government as a legacy.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are warned that this website contains imagery and voices of deceased persons.
