"[By] Elizabeth Adler, Anwar Barkat, Bena-Silu, Quince Duncan [and] Pauline Webb".
"WCC visit to the Aborigines". -- back cover.
"To many people in the world, the Aborigines are the hidden people of Australia. It was therefore a rare privilege for a small group of us from five different countries to spend three weeks visiting Australia and listening to Aboriginal people as they told us of their dreams, their hopes, their suffering and their struggle. We were sent by the World Council of Churches at the invitation of the Australian Council of Churches. Our mission was a direct outcome of the Conference on World Mission and Evangelism held in Melbourne in 1980 on the theme `Your Kingdom Come'. There it was urged that in seeking to discern signs of that Kingdom in our world today, Christians should pay special attention to the voices of the poor, the oppressed, and the dispossessed of the earth. One result was the ACC's decision to request the WCC to send a delegation to Australia to express solidarity with the Aboriginal people, to consult with the Australian churches about their own response to racism and to enable the world Christian community, through informed prayer and effective action, to support the Aborigines in their struggle for justice". -- Intro., p. 5.

Prologue
Since the termination of Project North in 1987, further evaluation and consultation between the churches in Canada has led to a new coalition on aboriginal justice concerns. This is the result of discussion between the churches, network groups, and native organizations. It shifts the focus of the former Project North to include justice issues for native people all over Canada and is based upon the church leaders' recent statement: "A New Covenant".
Text
That this National Executive Council support and participate fully in the new coalition: Project North - Ecumenical Coalition for Aboriginal Justice; and request the Program Committee to appoint two representatives from the Anglican Church of Canada to its Steering Committee. CARRIED #54-11-88
