Acknowledgment of Country

Aboriginal people have made, and continue to make, a unique and irreplaceable contribution to the State of South Australia.

The South Australian Government acknowledges and respects Aboriginal people as the State’s first people and recognises Aboriginal people as traditional owners and occupants of South Australian land and waters.

The South Australian Government acknowledges that the spiritual, social, cultural and economic practices of Aboriginal people come from their traditional lands and waters, and that Aboriginal people maintain cultural and heritage beliefs, languages and laws that are of ongoing importance today.
