Tonight I have chosen an Australian theme.
Every year, the country holds a week-long event called National Reconciliation Week
27 May-3 June.
It refers to the reconciliation of cultures between the white settlers of European descent who colonized the country in the late 18th century and the original indigenous culture which has been present on the continent for some 40,000 years.
This is a time for non indigenous people to learn something about indigenous culture and celebrate the wealth of this diversity.
To find out more about this week and what it means I spoke to Anita Heiss, from the Wiradjuri people from central NSW, in Australia.
She is the manager for the Epic Good Foundation, a national organisation with headquarters in Brisbane. She is a national lifetime ambassador for the Indigenous Literary foundation and a successful author.

Reconciliation week begins on May 27, a date which marks an important step in modern Australian history : on that day, back in 1967, a referendum was held to officially recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and count them in the national census.
The end of the week also marks a historic date – the 3rd of June referring to the Australian High Court decision in the 1992 Mabo vs Queensland case which recognised the connection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to their land, to then establish land rights.
