Acknowlegement to our Aboriginal Peoples, the Custodians of Country
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.
