Welcome to Country, and Acknowledgement of Country

As we depart Alice Springs and travel west towards Uluru, we journey through 3 separate indigenous cultural areas, otherwise referred to as language groups.

  • Luritja
  • Pit
  • Arrernte?

As we explore this ancient landscape, we pay our respects to all custodians of these lands, past present and emerging bla bla bla

What is a welcome to Country?

This is a phrase of words which we use to take a moment to reflect on the meaning of this place, and of the vast history and dreaming that relates to the area.

 

‘In the spirit of reconciliation the [organisation] acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.’
