Student Guild president Cameron Barnes said the Guild would liaise with the School of Indigenous Studies and WA Students Aboriginal Corporation as part of efforts to repair its relationship with the indigenous community.

Mr Barnes said he hoped the Guild could also work with the Indigenous Communities Education and Awareness (ICEA) foundation, which withdrew its support from Prosh and rejected funds raised by the event, in the future.

‘I’m very eager to rebuild that relationship and do whatever we can to support them,’ Mr Barnes said.

Former UWA student and state Opposition spokesman for Aboriginal Affairs Ben Wyatt last week blasted the satirical student magazine for publishing the offensive and racist Dream Time horoscope but said he was pleased the Guild promptly apologised and was satisfied with the action taken.
