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 ATSIDMQI committee has been formed to ensure that the sacrifices of these men and women are recognised and these heroes are honoured.
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Dedicate Memorial Queensland Incorporated has been formed with the support of Griffith University. ATSIDMQI aims to raise funds, engage professional artists and the broader community to facilitate the establishment of a memorial that commemorates the sacrifices made by these heroes.
