Call to replace "Indigenous" with "First Nations"......... I like it!


Instead of using the "Indigenous" tag, he called the talent-spotting rugby sevens program "First Nations", to create a more inclusive feel to what is an important program for the sport.

"The 'First Nations' term not only recognises [Aboriginal] people as the sovereign people of our land but it also recognises the unique language groups and sovereign nations that exist," Hodges said.

"The term 'Indigenous' is really linked with the White Australia policy.

"I guess here in Australia it is a new term because we haven't necessarily acknowledged the first people."

Hodges says the idea to call the program "First Nations" came to him after seeing how some other countries celebrate their traditional owners, using a similar term.

"Canada is probably one of the leaders around the world pushing for the rights of native people and acknowledging the differences that exist," he said.

"The word 'Aboriginal' or 'Indigenous' just brackets everyone but we know we have differences.

"There are over 250 nations and language groups across the country.

"We have got saltwater people, we have got desert people, we have got freshwater people, for example."

Rod222,

That divisive term, 'traditional owners' should be banned, causes false sense of ownership & attachment. You, me & all of us born here are level pegging in 2019. Any Aboriginal/Native still alive pre Cpt Cook would be a 'traditional owner' NOT their descendants

"The past is never dead. It's not even past", as the traditional owners might tell you.

US~ Australia "Paid All" markings.
2015

New South Wales "PAID ALL" Markings on Letters Addressed to the United States,1874-1891.

Before the establishment of the Universal Postal Union, the Government of the United States negotiated numerous Postal Conventions with foreign governments around the world. A Postal Convention between the United States and New Zealand was negotiated in 1870 and came into operation on December 1, 1870.

Similar Postal Conventions came into effect with New South Wales on 1 February 1874; with Queensland on 1 January 1876; with Victoria on 1 July, 1878; and with Tasmania on 1 July 1886. All of the Conventions became redundant when New Zealand and the Australian Colonies joined the U.P.U. on October 1. 1891. (The United States had no Postal Conventions with South Australia and Western Australia)

The Postal Conventions applied to trans-Pacific transport of the mails and specified the port cities in each country between which the postal services were to operate. All of the maiJs between the United States and its convention partners in the Pacific were routed through San Francisco.
Auckland and Wellington, New Zealand; Sydney, New South Wales; Brisbane, Queensland; Melbourne, Victoria; and Hobart, Tasmania were the exchange offices for the several colonies.

Spelled out in each of the Postal Conventions was the requirement that fully-prepaid letters be marked on the front with a bold "PAID ALL" in red ink: underpaid letters accepted for transmittal were to be marked the amount of underpayment in black ink. The cover shown on the front of this magazine and the one below illustrate different types of "PAID ALL" markings applied in Sydney to mail sent to the United States. (A third type is shown on the cover of the Summer 1996 issue of The Informer.)

J. Edgar Williams and I are attempting to identify the different types of "PAID ALL" instruments and solicit our reader's help. The results of our study will be reported in The Informer. This effort is just beginning and we have a long way to go. Ed has reported on his study of New Zealand's markings (see The Informer (Vol. 55, No. 1, p.7) but more
types may yet be found. Several types of N.S.W. markings have been identified, but the years before 1887 are not well covered, little has yet been accumulated on Queensland or Victoria, and nothing on Tasmania.

We need photocopies of the front and back of covers bearing "PAID ALL" markings, mailed to the United States from any of the five colonies in the years that the Postal Conventions were in force.
The "Postal Convention Between the United States of America and the Colonial Government of New South Wales" is reproduced on pages 22-23 following. The Postal Conventions between the United States, New Zealand, and the other Australian Colonies will be reproduced in coming issues of The Informer.

Rod,

Is there a link as to where we submit our information?

Hugh Wynn wrote a book on the 'emergency' printings of New South Wales on Victorian paper in 1907. A delightful bit of research.

Hi John,
alas! I have (unintentionally) misled you.
I have Australian and Great Britain Philatelic magazines dating back to 1924

I scan and preserve snippets of information so the information does not get lost over time.
This piece would have appeared in an "Australian Stamp Monthly" over the years. I took possession 2015
I usually keep the source, but not in this case, ergo it may have been sent to me.
The request therefore is out of date.
In future I'll indicate this. apologies.
