A veteran Tasmanian Aboriginal rights campaigner and a long serving indigenous media advocate have both questioned a move by the ABC to establish and grow a new Indigenous archives unit .

An ABC press release from early December said the unit will oversee the ABC’s Indigenous content collection of video, audio, photos and documents, including songs and ceremonies from as early as the 1940s to contemporary material on Indigenous communities, health, the land rights movement, the freedom ride in 1965, the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in front of Parliament House and the 2017 Uluru Statement from the Heart.
