We acknowledge the Ngunnawal people as the traditional owners and continuing custodians of the lands of the ACT and we pay our respects to the Elders, their families and ancestors.

We acknowledge that the effects of the forced removal of Indigenous children from their families as well as past racist policies and actions continues today.

We acknowledge that Indigenous people hold distinctive rights as the original peoples of modern day Australia, including the right to a distinct status and culture, self-determination and land.

We celebrate Ngunnawal culture and the invaluable contribution to the community.
