Reconciliation Week is marked by two important events in Australia's history. It starts on the anniversary of the 1967 Referendum, and ends on the anniversary of the 1992 High Court decision on the Mabo case. One day acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait people were in Australia prior to European settlement, the other tells us that Aboriginal and Torres Strait people are still here. The time between those days are an opportunity to think about what these two things mean to us as Australians.
