The weetapoona Aboriginal Corporation wishes to acknowledge the following:
Bruny Island was home to the Nuenone people who cared for this land for thousands of years, hunting and gathering.
We honour the traditional custodians by respecting the
land and minimising our impact on it. We leave undisturbed all heritage sites.
It is through these heritage places that Tasmanian Aboriginal people today connect with their ancestors and reconnect with the land. This connection is both our past and our future.
This country symbolises the continuing links between Aboriginal people today and a rich, ancient culture stretching back over 60,000 years and 2000 generations.
On behalf of our ancestors, we welcome you.
