Why do we celebrate National Reconciliation Week on these dates?

The dates honour two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision.
On 27 May 1967 Australians voted in a referendum against clauses in the Australian Constitution that discriminated against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
On 3 June 1992 the High Court of Australia made the Mabo decision. This recognises that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ have ownership to their own land.
“Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.” —Reconciliation Australia
