Reconciliation Week

May 27th to June 3rd is Reconciliation Week which aims at improving relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, reconciling their shared history and improving their futures together as Australians. To read more about Reconciliation go to Reconciliation Australia website and also look at JCU's Reconciliation Statement.

 JCU will sign a commitment to creating a Reconciliation Action Plan on Monday the 27th of May. The Eddie Koiki Mabo Library at Townsville has an art exhibition during this period that commemorates the naming of the building after Eddie Koiki Mabo (see our earlier posting).

For those seeking information about Indigenous topics and perspectives the library holds many resources or can help direct you to resources like the Australian Bureau of Statistics items; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples:  Education Data.
