This issue of Reconciliation News celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ contribution to our nation’s military efforts—by bringing together a collection of stories spanning 100 years.
In this edition, you’ll read about:
- Air Chief Marshal Sir Angus Houston, as he reflects on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander soldiers who have exemplified the Anzac spirit throughout their service. In the spirit of reconciliation, he also shares his belief that recognition of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander service people is a vitally important part of the Anzac Centenary
- ABC journalist Nance Haxton, who similarly shares her pride in fighting for due recognition of previously forgotten Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anzacs.
- The work of Gary Oakley and his team at the Australian War Memorial is building an everincreasing knowledge library of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women who have served.
