Darkinjung acknowledges that we operate and function on the lands of the Darkinyung people.
We pay our respect to these lands that provide for us. We acknowledge and pay respect to the ancestors that walked and managed these lands for many generations before us.
We acknowledge and recognise all Aboriginal people who have come from their own country and who have now come to call this country their home. We acknowledge our Elders who are our knowledge holders, teachers and pioneers.
We recognise all Aboriginal people who were forcibly removed from their families and communities and
acknowledge the negative impact on the Aboriginal community. We acknowledge for many of the children
and now adults, removal meant that they have now lost all connection to family, and the life-long consequences
for those taken.
We acknowledge our youth who are our hope for a brighter and stronger future and who will be our future leaders.
We acknowledge and pay our respect to our Members who have gone before us and recognise their contribution to
our people and community.
