~ As a migrant settler I acknowledge that I live and work on the lands of the Whadjuk people of the Bibbulmun nation, I acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Country. I acknowledge Traditional Owners throughout Australia and their continuing connection to the land, sea and community. I recognise that sovereignty was never ceded and pay my respects to Elders past and present. This always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
