National Reconciliation Week

For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, Australia’s colonial history is characterised by devastating land dispossession, violence and racism. Over the last half-century many significant steps towards reconciliation have been taken.

National Reconciliation Week started as the week of prayer for reconciliation in 1993 and it is held at the same time every year to commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision.
