National reconciliation week starts today 27 May and runs until 3rd of June.

ASHG wishes to acknowledge the Yuggera people who inhabited the local lands and give thanks to the First Nations people for their care of this special place over many generations.

The theme for 2024, Now More Than Ever, brings home the sharing and retelling important of stories from the past, that highlight ongoing the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The ASHG display team have updated the History room’s window in honour of reconciliation week.

A number of chapters in ASHG’s Stephens books published feature stories of local First Nations People. Chapter previews can be downloaded below.
