The long journey to Native Title and Self Determination.
Acknowledgement of Country
In loving memory of all our ancestors, we acknowledge their fight and their hard work to get recognition of our country and for us to be standing here today.
We acknowledge our ancestors, the traditional custodians of this land, and pay respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders past, present and future.
We make special mention of the elders of the Indigenous & Torres Strait Islander community, who have fought hard for recognition and empowerment. We stand on their shoulders and are proud to be part of a country that is now beginning to listen to and respect the voices of its First Peoples.
Thank you to all our ancestors for your strength, your resilience and your ongoing fight for justice. We honour you today and always and commit to building a brighter future together.
