By reflecting on this history, The Moral Frontier exposes confronting truths about the pervasive relationships still at play in our society today.

We acknowledge the unceded sovereignty of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations, and the old people who fought, sacrificed and resisted the invasion, dispossession and colonising tactics employed by the crown.  

We also acknowledge the ongoing resistance of First Nations Australians today.
