Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 4 Hansard (12 April) . .

Page.. 1387..


Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in the ACT an opportunity to collectively celebrate the survival of their cultures.

The role of Reconciliation Day ambassadors is to further this important messaging. That might mean speaking at schools, attending community events or engaging with the media and wider community to promote reconciliation and the opportunities for Canberrans to participate in the ongoing journey of reconciliation in our city and nation. Members of the Recompilation Day council will take on the role as ambassadors in addition to others who may be approached as part of the community engagement strategy.

The ACT government acknowledges and respects the continuing culture and contribution that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people make to the life of our region. ACT Reconciliation Day provides the opportunity for all Canberrans to learn more about and celebrate this Ngunnawal country that we live and work on, recognise the connections to country and broaden their knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
