Reconciliation Week in Melton

27 May 2015 Melton 0 Comment

Reconciliation Week is annually held from the 27th of May to the 3rd of June to remember the referendum in 1967 in which 90 percent of Australians voted ‘yes’ to include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the census. Reconciliation Week follows National ‘Sorry Day’ (26th of May) which each year nationally remembers and honours the Stolen Generations.

June 3rd each year recognises and remembers the historic Mabo decision, where the high court of Australia recognised the native title – the recognition that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rights over their lands did survive British colonisation.

The theme this year for Reconciliation Week is ‘It’s Time to Change it Up’ this is an opportunity for people of the community to make change in their school, workplace or community, no matter how big or small it may be.

There are activities planned in our community in the next week which include a Guided Walking Tour of the Melton Botanic Gardens and audio recordings available from the Melton library relevant to Reconciliation Week.

The Guided Walking Tour in Melton will take place on Friday the 29th of May at 10:00 AM and will explore volcanic plains, the Aboriginal Plant usage Garden, Indigenous plantings and the Koori Student Garden.

The audio recordings available from the Melton library and Learning Hub were put together by Marla Women’s Aboriginal Group and Melton Historical Society. The recordings celebrate the resilience of Aboriginal culture and also explore the loss and dispossession that faced the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.

This week is marked as an opportunity for our community to raise awareness of Aboriginal culture and history, as well as building mutually respectful relationships Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians.
