It’s National Reconciliation Week this week, and this year Reconciliation Australia is inviting all Australians to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories, to share that knowledge and help us grow as a nation.
This year’s celebrations focus on the telling of (and of course listening to) stories and ask us “Don’t Keep History a Mystery”. With a central theme of storytelling I wanted to share a mini stack this week of some of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories on my TBR pile.
