Yarra Labor News acknowledges the Wurundjeri people, the Traditional Owners of Birrarung – the Yarra River Valley and its tributaries. Birrarung always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
We recognise the continuing Wurundjeri connection to lands, waters and communities and we pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders both past and present. We acknowledge and celebrate the work of the many Aboriginal organisations and communities within this region.
Some Wurundjeri stories of this country can be read in Snapshots of Aboriginal Fitzroy (2002) a history commissioned by Yarra Council for the Aboriginal Cultural Signage Project, completed in partnership with the Yarra Aboriginal Advisory Group.
