Re: Donna, James and Matthew.

Pretty much so.

Not being from Australia I've found no reasons to feel 'guilty' and
plenty of reasons to actively participate in positively addressing an
enormous, drawn-out injustice which still has significant negative
consequences for the indigenous population.

I've attended loads of these events and helped arranged some. I have
never had any discussion with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
colleagues, staff, attendees (including adult students I've taught)
that has indicated a negative view OTHER than that this is a small
step; part of a solution not THE solution.
