“National Sorry Day” ABC Education

National Sorry Day occurs every year on the 26th of May, it is an important day when the colonial impacts are recognised. This day started in 1998 a year after the ‘Bringing them Home’ documentary. This documentary looked at the impacts of the Stolen Generation. The Stolen Generation occurred when the Government took Indigenous Children away from their families.

2008 saw Kevin Rudd’s Sorry Speech which apologised for the impact of the government and recognised the impact of the Stolen Generation on families and communities.
