A short version of what's what at the moment

The most pressing need for human rights in Australia is not that which seeks to force the lives of Australia’s First Peoples into half-real and residual ‘convenient’ categories – to comply with the norms of the modern Anglo-Australian nation state (a nation-state formed on the denial of the core place of First Peoples in Australian life) and to protect the privileges accured by non-indigenous interests over two centuries.

The most pressing need for human rights is to reform that modern nation-state to provide First Peoples with new arrangements by which they may live life to the full.

A comprehesive reform of the Australian Constitution (the 1901 White Australia Constitution) is required, complete with new forms of co-existing sovereignty between cultural partners.
