Narromine Shire Council recognises National Sorry Day 2021 

Narromine Shire Council acknowledges that today, 26 May is National Sorry Day.

2021 marks twenty years of Reconciliation Australia and almost three decades of Australia’s formal reconciliation process. This year’s theme is  ‘More than a word. Reconciliation takes action’.

Narromine Shire Council General Manager, Mrs Jane Redden said ‘National Sorry Day is an opportunity for Council and the community to acknowledge the strength of Stolen Generations Survivors and reflect how we all play a part in the healing process, this date carries great significance across Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and is commemorated across Australia.

The first National Sorry Day was held on 26 May 1998 to commemorate the anniversary of the tabling of the ‘Bringing Them Home Report’ in Federal parliament, and it was this report that formally recognised the stories of the stolen generations. 

It is important to acknowledge these significant days for the members of our community and Council is committed to supporting reconciliation that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, history and the future, added Mrs Redden.

National Reconciliation Week runs from 27 May until 3 June 2021.
