Australia celebrates “National Sorry Day,” as a way to make amends for the historical persecution of Aboriginal people. So who are the Aboriginal people of Australia?
Guidelines for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Terminology
“The purpose of these guidelines is to provide Queensland Health staff with guidance on appropriate terminology when working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities, and for use in all relevant policy, planning, programs and resource development.”
Sorry Day and the Stolen Generations
“The first National Sorry Day was held on 26 May 1998 – one year after the tabling of the report Bringing them Home, May 1997.”
Kinship and Identity
“The legal historian, John McCorquodale, has reported that since the time of white settlement, governments have used no less than 67 classifications, descriptions or definitions to determine who is an Aboriginal person.”
