We sleep and dream on First Nations lands. We acknowledge all First Peoples and celebrate their enduring connections to Country and stories. We thank Elders and Ancestors who watch over us and guide our communities.
An Acknowledgement of Country is a way to acknowledge First Nations people as the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live, learn, play and sleep.
It recognises the sovereignty of First Nations people, and gives thanks for caring for Country since time immemorial.
It’s also a way of paying respect to Elders and Ancestors who shaped this continent.
