Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre recognises the resilience of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and reflect on The Stolen Generations.
We remember the mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people who were forcibly removed from their families and communities. We recognise the strength of the survivors and The Stolen Generations, and reflect on the historical injustices that took place.
It is important on National Sorry Day to reflect on the past, and ensure we take action to educate ourselves.
Please take today to reflect on Australia's past, and educate yourself on the importance of Sorry Day.
