Lesson ideas and activities to celebrate and explore Australia’s indigenous history in Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week, which celebrates and builds on the relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians, is held annually between 27 May and 3 June.
