Anniverary of the Apology to the Stolen Generations

ATSI flag

A nniversary of the National Apology to the Stolen Generations  13 February

Saturday 13th February is the Anniversary of the National Apology to Australia's First Peoples for the removal of children from their families based on race.

In 2008 on Wednesday 13 February, the then Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd MP in his address to Parliament made an Apology to Australia’s Stolen Generation. This marked an important step in mending the relationship between Australia’s first people, the Government and the Australian population.

If you are considering an event or reflection to commemorate the day the following resources may be useful:

Reconciliation Australia – Apology fact sheet and video .

Reconciliation  South Australia – education kit

Australian Government – various down-loadable video formats and transcript of the speech.

“Took the Children Away” Archie Roach – song, YouTube
