My Ancestors did not own land, in the same way that human beings do not own this planet. Traditionally it was not bought or sold, it was however divided and contained within natural boundaries, usually waterways or mountains. Each “Country” was known, protected & maintained by the local families connected to all living entities belonging to that particular place. For tens of thousands of years it was kept clean and healthy in a respectful & knowledgeable way. In the spirit of respect and harmony, any group or individuals outside of these boundaries were requested to seek permission to walk or hunt upon another families home.
Feeling welcome is fundamental to developing a sense of trust. Trust is an essential component of any relationship. When we feel trust we begin to feel safe. We are much more likely to return to people, places & organisations that make us feel safe and welcome. By displaying these posters it is my hope that they symbolise an acknowledgement and commitment to welcome Aboriginal people to your community or organisation. The use of local Aboriginal language together with English language on the posters represents two cultures creating relationships and sharing resources; acknowledging the past and welcoming the future.
