APOLOGY TO AUSTRALIA’S INDIGENOUS PEOPLES
Today, it felt a little better to be a non-Indigeous Australian. I am proud of the Federal government for the first time in many, many years. I hope this doesn't stop here - that all of the recommendations of the Bringing Them Home Report are implimented. And I am very, very sorry and ashamed of how Indigeous Australian families, culture, and human rights have been treated so shabbily over the last 2 hundred years.
