and raises awareness of the history and continued effect of the forced removal
of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from their families,

National Sorry Day and throughout National Reconciliation Week recognises the
significance of these events for all Australians and is a sign of respect for

have them on display at the back of the Council Chambers.
