Range of opinions on an Indigenous voice to parliament

* Referendum working group member Thomas Mayor, Torres Strait Islander.

"A voice will recognise our long-existing history, culture and heritage - and give us a voice on decisions that are made about us."

* NSW Greens upper house candidate Lynda-June Coe, Wiradjuri.

"I think it's a step forward in terms of the relationship that we currently have with government.

"I am still of the view that community need to be educated widely about what it actually entails, and that's the message that I'm getting travelling across the state."

* Co-Chair of the Uluru Youth Dialogue, Bridget Cama, Wiradjuri and Fiji Pasifika.

"We are three per cent of the population and we need non-Indigenous people to walk with us - and that's what the Uluru statement calls for.

"It's substantial and structural reform to actually allow First Nations peoples to have a say on the issues that affect us and for us to participate in the democratic processes and the decision-making processes that affect our lives."

* Nathan Brennan, from the Gumbaynggirr Giingana Freedom School on the NSW North Coast.

"I would really like to see what the wording is and more dialogue around the whole treaty process and how this might work as well," he said.

"Once this information comes out, I will form a more solid opinion on the referendum."

* Central Land Council CEO Les Turner, Arrernte.

"Our rangers want to know how the voice will help them to better look after country and improve the lives of their families," he said.

* Minister for Indigenous Australians Linda Burney, Wiradjuri.

"We are on the verge of doing something remarkable - of finally recognising First Nations people in a way that will make us feel proud.

"We will all walk taller the day after the referendum."
