Statement of acknowledgement (for gatherings held within the Kaurna region)
We acknowledge this land that we meet on today is the traditional lands for Kaurna [pronounced ‘garna’] people and that we respect their spiritual relationship with their country. We also acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the Adelaide region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today. We also pay respects to the cultural authority of Aboriginal people visiting/attending from other areas of South Australia/Australia present here.
