Acknowledgement of Country

I acknowledge and feel grateful to live, work and play on the majestic lands of the Dharawal people. I  pay my respects to them, to their culture, and to their Elders, past and present.

This always has been, and always will be, their land. I feel honoured and privileged to share it and call it my home. 

 

I believe that with the privilege of calling this land home, I have an obligation to help uphold the culture and heritage of the Dharawal people. 

 

Diversity and inclusion is a crucial part of our culture. I respect the wisdom and perspective of Aboriginal people and am grateful for every opportunity I’ve had to be educated about their ways of seeing and being.

 

First Nations people all play a role in educating all people of Australia, the beautiful country in which we all share and live in together. 

 

If you are reading this, and do not have your own Acknowledgement, I urge and encourage you to change that by taking action now and writing your own.

If you need help understanding the Aboriginal land where you reside or conduct business, AIATSIS is a great resource.
