National Reconciliation Week (27 May – 3 June 2016)

Our History, Our Story, Our Future

The theme of National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 2016 is Our History, Our Story, Our Future.

This theme asks all Australians to reflect on our national identity, and the place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and rights in our nation’s story.

It is a call to action for each and every one of us—a call to make reconciliation part of our own lives and our own stories.

‘Our History’ reminds us all that historical acceptance is essential to our reconciliation journey.

‘Our Story’ reflects that the journey towards reconciliation forms a significant part of Australia’s story.

‘Our Future’ reinforces that reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward.
