Schoolchildren display a banner reading "Sorry, the first step" as they watch Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd on a large screen deliver an historic apology to Aboriginal people for injustices committed over two centuries of white settlement, at The Block Aboriginal community in Sydney on February 13, 2008. Of the million indigenous people who are believed to have lived throughout the country before white settlement began in 1788, there are only about 470,000 Aborigines left, just over two percent of Australia's population of 21 million.
