John Oxley Library records responses to Apology

In March 2009, staff from the John Oxley Library visited Mount Isa to record Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s responses to the 2008 Apology.

One year on from Kevin Rudd’s official Apology to Australia’s Indigenous peoples, the stories that have been created reflect the experiences, emotion and concerns about Indigenous reconciliation and the future.

Seven people in total shared their stories, ranging from Robyrta Felton a Mornington Island elder with extensive experience in local government and Indigenous issues, to Soraya Johnston a Grade 11 student at Spinifex High School, Mount Isa.
