Mamamia only refers to January 26 by its date, to acknowledge that it is not a day of celebration for all Australians.
As a proud Yorta-Yorta woman, it's a subject that is deeply personal for her.

"I'm exhausted already and it's not even January 26," Allira said on the podcast earlier this week, alongside artist, activist, and proud Goreng Goreng woman Rachael Sarra (she/her).
Both Allira and Rachael explained how they used to prescribe to the idea of changing the date – not celebrating 'Australia Day' on January 26, but instead on a more neutral date.
Now, they feel differently, saying, "We both want to not change the date, but abolish the date."
