The term 'Stolen Generations' is used to refer to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who were forcibly removed from their families, communities, and country. Today, on National Sorry Day, we acknowledge and recognise both the injustices of the past and the impact on these individuals and families today. We reflect on how we can all play a part in the healing process of our nation.
If you'd like to learn more about the Stolen Generations and the practice of removing children from their families which continues to this day, the landmark documentary 'After the Apology' is available to stream for free on SBS On Demand. It shares the powerful story of four grandmothers who started a national movement to tackle the rising number of Indigenous children in out-of-home care by involving their extended families.
