We acknowledge that the lands we speak of today is the traditional lands for the First peoples in Australia, Turtle Island USA & Ethiopia. We respect their spiritual relationship with Country. We also acknowledge the First peoples of Australia and Turtle Island  as the traditional custodians of the land currently known as Australia and America and their cultural & heritage beliefs. In keeping with the spirit of Reconciliation, we acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands & recognise that these have always been places of teaching & learning. We wish to pay respect to their Elders — past, present & emerging.
