Celebrate National Reconciliation Week 2017!

National Reconciliation Week runs every year from 27 May – 3 June. These dates mark two milestones in Australia’s reconciliation journey: The 1967 referendum and the historic Mabo decision, respectively.

In 2017, Reconciliation Australia asks that we reflect on two significant anniversaries in Australia’s reconciliation journey – 50 years since the 1967 referendum, and 25 years since the historic Mabo decision. If all Australians commemorate these significant milestones, we can all become a part of the next big steps in our nation’s reconciliation journey.

Reconciliation Australia has put together a reading list for anyone who would like to learn more about our Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander peoples, histories and cultures, and most of the titles are held in the Library, including:
