National Sorry Day 2016

May 26, 2016 in Australia

National Sorry Day takes place on May 26, 2016. National Sorry Day is an annual event that has been held in Australia since 1998, to remember and commemorate the mistreatment of the continent's indigenous population. The Australian government's most controversial policies resulted in an entire "Stolen Generation" - i.e., "Aboriginal children separated, often forcibly, from their families of origin in the interest of turning them into white Australians".

May 26 carries great significance for the Stolen Generations, as well as for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, and non-indigenous Australians. On May 26, 1997, the "Bringing Them Home" report was tabled in Parliament. The annual National Sorry Day commemorations remind and raise awareness among politicians, policy makers, and the wider public about the significance of the forcible removal policies and their impact on the children that were taken, but also on their families and communities.
