Acknowledgement of Traditional Aboriginal Custodians

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of Canberra and celebrates their ongoing culture and contribution to the ACT and region. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body also acknowledges that many other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from across Australian have now made Canberra their home and we also acknowledge and celebrate their cultures and diversity and their contribution to the ACT and region.
