National Reconciliation Week

21 May 2018 | Australia

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) in Australia (27 May - 3 June) is held to celebrate Indigenous history and culture and to celebrate and promote respectful relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians.

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 us grow as a nation. The theme is: Don’t Keep History A Mystery

As we prepare to move forward together, this week offers non-Indigenous Australians a chance to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture.

Here are some other sites you might explore:
Reconciliation Australia
Stand for Recognition
Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies

You might also like to visit the SSJG Heritage Centre which tells the story of the ministry of the Sisters of St John of God in the Kimberley region of Western Australia for over 110 years.
