Welcome – Men, Women and Children to Ngarrindjeri Land
We would like to acknowledge this land that we meet on today is the traditional lands of the Ngarrindjeri people and we respect their spiritual relationships with their country. We also acknowledge the Ngarrindjeri people as the custodians of the River Murray, Lakes, Coorong and Encounter Bay Region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still important to the living Ngarrindjeri people today.
