We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands, seas and waters which are embedded with our spirit, culture and knowledge. We recognise the powerful connection we have to our spirits, ancestors and to our community.
We pay our deepest respects to our Elders who sung the Songlines before us and those that will sing into the future.
We pay respects to our Stolen Generations Survivors, their families and whole communities, including those who never made it home, and those who are still searching.
