Every year in Australia, National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is celebrated. It is a time dedicated to building positive, respectful relationships between Australians and celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ culture. The overarching aim of this period is to explore how we can best contribute to the reconciliation process.
NRW commences this Saturday, 27th May. There are many ways that you can take part in this wonderful week. On Sunday, 28th May, you might like to take part in the Blackwood Reconciliation Walk. Details are as follows:
Join us for the annual Blackwood Reconciliation Walk, Sunday May 28. The event is non ticketed and free.
Meet at the Blackwood roundabout for an 11:30am start for the 30 minute walk down the footpath of Shepherds Hill Road to the Colebrook Reconciliation Park.
Ngangki Warra will provide a Welcome to Country, local children will sing and brief speeches will follow. There will be a sausage sizzle and plenty of opportunity to be immersed in the site and consider the upcoming referendum.
