 National Reconciliation Week 2023 at South Eveleigh - Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony

 

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) falls on May 27- June 3 annually. These dates are a remembrance of two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision. It’s a time for all Australians to learn and acknowledge the Indigenous history and culture while continuing to explore how we can all contribute to fostering reconciliation through discussions, events and proactivity. 

The theme for #NRW2024 is “Now More Than Ever”, is an important reminder that the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People must persist no matter what the circumstances. 

“Now more than ever, the work continues. In treaty making, in truth-telling, in understanding our history, in education, and in tackling racism. We need connection. We need respect. We need action. And we need change. Now more than ever, we need reconciliation.” - Reconciliation Australia
