Reconciliation Week


http://www.reconciliation.org.au/


RECONCILIATION WEEK
Held between 27 May and June 3 each year, these two dates are important for both indigenous and non-idigenous Australians. Reconciliation means to working towards a better relationship with each other. For Australians, it also means accepting the past - especially when thinking about how the British settled Australia and not thinking that the land actually belonged to the Aboriginal people.
On 27th May 1967, a special vote was held in Australia called a 'Referendum'. On this day, most Australians voted to have sections removed from our 'Constitution' (a country's basic rules) that did not treat indigenous people the same as non-indigenous people. This is called 'discrimination'.
On June 3rd 1992 it was accepted in court that Aboriginal people did have rights to the land in Australia before the arrival of British settlers in 1788.
Each year there is a different theme - in 2012 it is:
" Let's Talk Reconciliation"
