Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories on display

A COLLECTION of stories celebrating the proud heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is on show in Mackay.

The stories, collated by the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, are on show in front of Target, at Caneland Central, until Monday, June 3.

It's a special project for National Reconciliation Week.  

Part of its message is to work towards a greater understanding and respect for each other.

The stories are about local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and groups and their work in the community.

National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

National Reconciliation Week runs annually from May 27 to June 3.

This year's theme, Grounded in truth, walk together with courage, reinforces the importance of acknowledging the past to establish a unified future.

The truth-telling of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history is intrinsic to the reconciliation journey and the process of building meaningful, respectful and grounded relationships with each other.
