I want to take a moment to appreciate the 80,000 year history of this country, I want us all to take a moment to honor the fact that Aboriginal people cared for the land we now call home since the time of the Nyitting Dreaming, their connections to the earth, animals, seas, waterways are apart of their being, to the Whadjuk Nyungar elders, thank you for having us here today, I also extend my respects to elders across all Aboriginal nations and language groups,
Whadjuk Artist Julianne Wade acknowledges and pays tribute to the Nyungar Whadjuk people and their elders, past and present as the traditional custodians of the land Boodjar on which we work. This acknowledgment extends to first nations peoples across the state of Western Australia where our vision, purpose, values, and approach extend.
Whadjuk artist recognises and values the continuity of cultural and spiritual practices of first nations peoples. we wish to advise our first nations peoples that this site may contain the names, images, or AUDIO-VISUAL recordings of people who have passed away.
