Land Acknowledgment in Our Community
At Mitcham Social, we recognize the importance of acknowledging the traditional lands on which our community operates. We pay our respects to the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, who are the Traditional Custodians of the lands we inhabit. This land acknowledgment reflects our commitment to cultural awareness, respect, and reconciliation.
The Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people have a profound and enduring connection to this land, and we acknowledge their deep knowledge of local ecosystems, sustainable practices, and spiritual bonds with the natural world. Their wisdom and stewardship serve as an inspiration to our community.
We extend our respect to the Elders, both past and present, who have preserved their cultural heritage and shared their knowledge. Their leadership and dedication live music are invaluable contributions to the diverse cultural tapestry of our society.
This land acknowledgment is not merely a formality; it is a pledge to learn from the wisdom and sustainable practices of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people, incorporating these values into our community’s ethos.
As we move forward, our community aims to amplify the voices and perspectives of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people, recognizing their ongoing contributions to our society and the essential role they play as custodians of the land. The land acknowledgment is a symbol of our dedication to a shared journey of understanding, respect, and unity within our community.
