Acknowledgement of County – Acoustic music version
CQUniversity curated Acknowledgment of Country (acoustic music version).
We meet on this country in the spirit of reconciliation. As we come together today, we acknowledge the rich history of this land and offer recognition and respect for the custodians who have lived here continuously, for many centuries.
We acknowledge elders of the past who have created the history, those who are with us in the present to lead us forward, and the elders and leaders who will guide us in the future. For all embody the memories traditions and cultures that are vital to preserving connections to this land. We acknowledge and offer greetings to first nations people from everywhere in Australia, to those on country bounded by sea, to those from the red interior, to those who dwell amongst magnificent forests, and to the many who live in cities across this land.
