National Sorry Day can evoke many feelings and emotions, for some, it’s a day for commemoration, mourning, reflection and reconciliation.
This day marks 23 years since the Bringing Them Home Report which was tabled in conjunction with the National Inquiry into the separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from their families and communities.
It is such an important day to remember our Stolen Generations, their descendants, communities and healing that is still ongoing.
National Sorry Day is a day to acknowledge the strength of Stolen Generations Survivors and reflect on how we can all play a part in the healing process for our people and nation. Through song, dance, words, education and actions we see contributions to truth telling and healing within our communities.
Hear from the Ngangkarri Women’s Group message of strength, resilience and healing sang for our Stolen Generations, families and communities.
Songs below were sang at The Healing Foundation’s 10 year anniversary dinner in November 2019.
