National Reconciliation Week runs from 30 May to 3 June 2018. These are significant dates in Australian history and the nation’s reconciliation journey. 30 May is the date of the successful 1967 Referendum which saw Australians vote to amend the constitution to allow the Commonwealth to make laws for Aboriginal people and include them in the census. 3 June marks the High Court’s Mabo decision which legally recognised Aboriginals rights to Australian land. National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. This year’s theme is: Don’t Keep History a Mystery: Learn. Share. Grow.
