Victorian Aboriginal Honour Roll

November 13, 2019

Nominations for 2020 Victorian Aboriginal Honour Roll Inductees closed on 31 May 2020.

The Victorian Aboriginal Honour Roll recognises the achievements of Aboriginal Victorians, both past and present, who have made a profound contribution to their community and to Victoria. Inductees have dedicated their lives to helping others and giving back to their community, while fighting for self-determination and equality. Reconciliation Victoria encourages Victorians to become familiar with and share the inspirational stories and achievements of all inductees on the Roll. To date, 117 outstanding Aboriginal people have been recognised in a wide range of fields, including justice, education, health, sport, the arts, community leadership and military service.

We’re proud that the tireless efforts of past Reconciliation Victoria Council members John Baxter and Vicki Clark have been acknowledged as they were inducted into the Victorian Aboriginal Honour Roll in 2016 and 2017, respectively.
