I acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land where I work and live, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, and pay my respects to Elders past, present and future emerging. I celebrate and respect Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander peoples as the oldest, living storytellers who carry the cultural wisdom, traditions and dreaming of this ancient land.
