We acknowledge the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people, who are the traditional owners of the land on which Woroni is written, edited, printed and distributed.
We pay our respects to Elders past, present and future.
We would also like to acknowledge that this land – which we bene t from occupying – was stolen, and that sovereignty was never ceded.
Within this ongoing echo of colonialism we commit, as writers and editors, to amplify the voices and stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people at our university.
We will honour the diversity of their stories and stand by their right to recognition.
