2020 marks two decades since Australians came together all over the country to walk across bridges and roads in solidarity and support for reconciliation.
Then, as now, reconciliation has been a journey that First Nations Peoples and non-Indigenous Australians must take together to become a truly reconciled nation.
Each year the Peace Foundation partners with Kaurna Elder Frank Wanganeen to present a guided walk along the Kaurna Trail in Adelaide during the History Festival month in May. This year this is not possible because of the COVID19 restrictions.
Therefore the Peace Foundation invites you to participate in one or more In My Blood It Runs reconciliation activities presented by the In My Blood It Runs team. The film In My Blood It Runs must not be missed. It is an intimate, compassionate and observational documentary from the perspective of a 10-year-old Aboriginal boy in Alice Springs struggling to balance his traditional Arrernte/Garrawa upbringing with a state education. This is an award winning documentary that has been shown internationally. Participate in these activities here.
Check out other National Reconciliation Week events from 27 May – 3 June to mark the week and celebrate the 2020 theme, In This Together.
