E mihi tēnei te mana whenua e nga Iwi Moemoea, e nga kaitiaki ō tenei whenua.
I pay my deepest respects to the Wurundjeri & Boon Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation, whose lands I live, work and grow within.
I extend my respects to the Yuin and Eora Nations, where I was raised, and to all First Nations peoples of this place, and worldwide. I acknowledge Aboriginal people as the true and rightful custodians for land, spirit, knowledge, culture, lore and story across so-called-australia. I pay respects to elders past, present and future. I acknowledge the great honour and privilege that it is to practice my own traditions, culture and storytelling in a place that carries the legacy of the longest living culture in the world.
Treaties never signed, sovereignty never ceded.
Always was, always will be Aboroginal and Torres Strait Islander land.
