Remembering the Apology

Today, SLQ will also continue our digital stories project that began a decade ago, capturing the impressions, feelings and memories of Queenslanders surrounding this significant event.

Our Indigenous Voices blog has gathered a range of recollections and you can also watch some video interviews with people from Cooktown to Brisbane, to see how they responded to the Apology.
