We are grateful to the Traditional Custodians of the lands this Festival is held upon, the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung peoples, and pay our greatest respect to Elders past and present.

From time immemorial, to European arrival and through to the present, Aboriginal culture has always played a major part in Australian culture, but has not always been seen by all. There is a resurgence occurring as we speak, with legacies being left for future generations from within the local Melbourne Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung communities. Through mirram ngang-gak (deep listening) to the ngulu-al Gulinj Narrm-u (voice of Indigenous Melbourne) and wurrung (language) we hope to learn about onemda (love), biik (land) and balit (strength).
