Acknowledgement of Country


We would like to respectfully acknowledge the Jagera and Turrbal People, the Traditional Owners of the land which sustains us, and our kith and kin. We recognise that this land has always been under their custodianship. We also pay our respects to the Elders both past and present of this country and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Throughout this study, we use the terms ‘First Australian’ or ‘Indigenous Australian’ when referring to people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage, and ‘Peoples’ when referring to the collective group of Aboriginal nations. We acknowledge the inadequacy of these homogenising Western terms used to describe such a diverse range of Peoples, languages and cultures.  However, we hope this terminology is sufficient for the purposes of this survey in describing the multi-dimensional relationship that this survey covers. We offer an unreserved apology in lieu of our inadequate terminology causing any undue annoyance or umbrage; this was not our intention.
