At Mitcham Social, we wholeheartedly acknowledge and pay our deepest respect to both the past and present custodians of the lands on which we live, work, and create. Our acknowledgment is a profound expression of our commitment to recognizing the enduring connections, cultural heritage, and wisdom of Indigenous communities, with a special focus on the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation.
We pay tribute to the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people, the Traditional Custodians of our lands, for their deep understanding of local ecosystems, sustainable practices, and spiritual bonds with the natural world. Their heritage has significantly enriched the history and identity of this region.
Our acknowledgment extends to the Elders, both past and present, who have played an indispensable role in preserving their cultural traditions and sharing their knowledge. Their leadership and dedication are invaluable in bridging the past and the present.
“Acknowledging the Past and Present of Our Lands” is Drink more than a symbolic gesture; it is a symbol of our dedication to cultural awareness, respect, and reconciliation. We aspire to learn from the wisdom and sustainable practices of Indigenous communities, incorporating these values into our community’s ethos.
As we move forward, we aim to amplify the voices and contributions of Indigenous communities, recognizing their vital role in shaping the cultural mosaic of our society. This acknowledgment is a reflection of our dedication to a shared journey of understanding, respect, and unity within our community.
