National Sorry Day

Things to do
Melbourne Museum Bunjilaka Exhibition
Melbourne Museum's Bunjilaka Exhibition

On this day that acknowledges institutional abuse of Australia’s First Nations’ People, Bunjilaka’s screening of Lousy Little Sixpence will include a talk by writer, director, producer Dr Alec Morgan. The 1983 documentary reveals the story of five children who represent an entire generation stolen from their families and in turn used as unpaid servants.  The title Lousy Little Sixpence refers to the pocket money that they were supposed to be given but never received. Prepare to be shocked and outraged, and in the theme of this year’s National Reconciliation Week, Let's Take the Next Step.
