At Mitcham Social, we hold a deep reverence for the ancestors of the land, particularly the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live, work, and create. Our respect is a profound acknowledgment of the enduring connection that these ancestors had with the land, and their invaluable role in preserving the cultural heritage of the region.
The ancestors of the land, represented by the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people, have left a lasting legacy of deep knowledge of local ecosystems, sustainable practices, and spiritual bonds with the natural world. Their wisdom, traditions, and cultural heritage have enriched the land for thousands of years.
Our respect extends to the Elders, both past and present, who have dedicated their lives to preserving their cultural traditions and sharing their knowledge. Their leadership and dedication have played a vital role in shaping the cultural identity of Australia.
Respecting the ancestors of the land is not Drink merely a formality; it is a symbol of our commitment to cultural awareness, respect, and reconciliation. We aspire to learn from the wisdom and sustainable practices of the ancestors, incorporating these values into our community’s ethos.
As we move forward, we aim to amplify the voices and contributions of Indigenous communities, celebrating their rich cultural heritage and recognizing their pivotal role in the preservation of the land. Respecting the ancestors of the land is a heartfelt dedication to a shared journey of understanding, respect, and unity within our community.
