Acknowledgement of Country
I am a writer living and working on Wadawurrung Country. I gratefully acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land, water and culture, the Wadawurrung People. I recognise their continuing custodianship of the land, water and culture. I recognise that I, and my children, benefit from this custodianship. I pay my respects to Elders past, present and emerging and extend this to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People. I recognise that sovereignty has never been ceded. I recognise that dispossession and genocide is part of Australia’s history, and its impact is present today.
