National Reconciliation Week (NRW) takes place annually from May 27 – June 3 to commemorate two significant milestones: the 1967 Referendum granting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people the right to vote and, the 1992 Mabo decision debunking the fallacy of the doctrine of ‘Terra Nullius’. NRW is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. The momentum for greater reconciliation action is building across Australia and, especially, here in Trouwunna/lutruwita (Tasmania). The NRW theme for 2024, Now More Than Ever, is a reminder to all of us that no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will —and must —continue.
