National Reconciliation Week 2018

"Don’t Keep History A Mystery: Learn. Share. Grow"

This year during National Reconciliation Week, Reconciliation Australia invites all Australians to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories, to share that knowledge and help with us grow as a nation.

What is National Reconciliations Week?

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time in which we can reflect on our reconciliation journey as a nation, Each year NRW is from 27 May - 3 June. During the week, thousands of events are held nation-wide to celebrate and support reconciliation.

These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.

Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

How far have we come from 1967?

ABC has a segment called Right Wrongs which will help you to reflect on the significance of the 1967 referendum and how historical acceptance and ‘righting wrongs’ continue to drive reconciliation forward. Historical acceptance is one of the five integral and interrelated dimensions of reconciliation in Australia. True historical acceptance requires all Australians to understand and accept the wrongs of the past and acknowledge both the immediate and intergenerational impacts of these wrongs. It is only through honestly and holistically acknowledging the past that Australia can properly make amends for past wrongs and ensure that they are never repeated into the future.
