The day gave the non-indigenous to acknowledge their wrongs, and unite and commit to the continuation of the recognition of Aboriginal rights and ultimately reconciliation.
The recognition of Aboriginal rights did not take place until the late 20th century, which by then the Aboriginal population had suffered greatly. The change in Australian attitudes towards Aborigines allowed for the first step in the recognition of Aboriginal rights in 1967, and subsequently the Mabo Decision of 1992 and the Native Title Act of 1993, the Bringing Them Home report of 1997 and finally, the first National Sorry Day in May 26 1998. Each of these brought about an understanding of the Aboriginal situation, acceptance of the Aborigines' human status and overall the immense recognition of Aboriginal human rights - the road towards reconciliation is nearing an end.
