National Reconciliation Week: 27 May - 3 June 2017

The theme for National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 2017 is ‘Let’s take the next steps’. This reflects on the two significant anniversaries in Australia’s reconciliation journey—50 years since the 1967 referendum (27 May) and 25 years since the historic Mabo decision (3 June). As we commemorate these significant milestones, we ask all Australians to be a part of the next big steps in our nation’s reconciliation journey.

The week celebrates and builds on the respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians. All Australians are invited to participate in our nation’s reconciliation journey. Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of us all as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples. Make reconciliation part of your story and your future by getting involved in some of the National Reconciliation Week activities.
