The Victorian Indigenous Honour Roll serves to formally acknowledge and celebrate the wide-ranging achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Victorians, past and present.
As the Honour Roll builds over time, all people have the opportunity to learn about the contributions and achievements of both historical and contemporary Aboriginal Victorians in the areas of community leadership, human and social rights, activism, sports, music and more. While some individuals may be more widely known than others, all share an equal place of honour on this Roll.
This formal and ongoing acknowledgment of the achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Victorians is a significant element of reconciliation. Reconciliation aims to improve the relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians by raising awareness of the history, culture and significant contributions that Aboriginal Australians make to society.
