I respectfully acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land in which I live on, the Ngunnawal people. I pay my respects to the Elders past, present and into the future. I further acknowledge the important role that Indigenous people continue to play within our communities, recognising their deep spiritual connection to land, water, seas and skies.
"Today we stand in footsteps millennia old. May we acknowledge the traditional owners whose cultures and customs have nurtured, and continue to nurture, this land, since men and women awoke from the great dream. We honour the presence of these ancestors who reside in the imagination of this land and whose irrepressible spirituality flows through all creation."
