Anniversary of National Apology Day
Anniversary of National Apology Day to Stolen Generations marks the day that former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd apologised for Australia’s appalling treatment of First Nations Peoples. This anniversary holds great significance in this country’s history. For more than 5 decades, the Stolen Generation represented a time where government policies allowed for the forced removal of First Nations children from their families. The impact has been catastrophic, with language, culture and identity of many First Nations being almost completely erased. Due to the intergenerational nature of such trauma, communities have and will continue to be affected. It is crucial to acknowledge the mistreatment of Indigenous Peoples in this nation and work towards making reparations. Understanding and consideration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders is necessary for all Australians. By being better informed of the past and present plight of First Nations People this nation can work towards removing the systemic problems that still persist.
Cultural Infusion shares numerous programs that teach children of all ages the unique Indigenous Peoples’ cultures. With artistic activities, interesting experiences, traditional dancing, students discover the rich culture of the First Peoples.
