One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has criticised the lack of a set definition to determine whether a person is Aboriginal.

Senator Hanson tonight highlighted the possibility for non-indigenous people to be classified as Aboriginal by marrying an indigenous person or being accepted by elders of a community.

In an interview with conservative presenter and columnist Andrew Bolt on Sky News, Senator Hanson said: “That’s not good enough because then if you make a comment about it, well what are you? Are you an Aboriginal or not an Aboriginal?”
