Reconciliation Week – May 27 to 2rd June 2018

Reconciliation Week

May 27th to 2nd June 2018

Background History

Australia has a long history of reconciliation and countless people – aboriginal Torres Straits Islander and non- indigenous – have dedicated their life’s work to reconciliation movement. As a result, many significant steps have been taken.

In the 25 years since the council for Aboriginal Reconciliation (CAR) was established, the concept of reconciliation has taken a holistic approach that encompasses rights, as well as so-called symbolic and practical actions. Over this time, reconciliation has introduced a greater focus on the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians and opened up a national debate on prejudice, discrimination and racism. It has raised broader questions about our national identity and the place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders histories, cultures and rights in our nation’s story.

Don’t Keep History a Mystery

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 help us grow as a nation.

“Don’t Keep History A Mystery: Learn, Share, Grow” explores history hidden just beneath the surface, ready and waiting to be uncovered. “This National Reconciliation Week” learn more about the Australia story.

We as aboriginals and Non-aboriginal peoples are working and walking together with a holistic approach to learning and gaining a better understanding of Australia black history and their stories.

This understanding engages and builds stronger relationships for all Australians and improves a nation without prejudice, discrimination and racism a journey shared in the fight for unity, acceptance and pride.

Today we celebrate our reconciliation week with a morning tea between the GCH staff and the Grampians Indigenous Family Violence Regional Action Group representatives. (GIFVRAG)
