Reconciliation Week

Adelaide Hills Council acknowledges that we undertake our business on the traditional lands and waters of the Peramangk and Kaurna people. We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and emerging as the Custodians of this ancient and beautiful land for they hold the memories, traditions, spiritual relationships, culture, and hopes of the First Nations of Australia.

In this together: National Reconciliation Week 2020

Reflect on this year's theme: In this together

Local Peramangk and Kaurna Elder, Ivan-Tiwu Copley, invites the community to use these recent weeks of isolation and difficulty to reflect on our country's past, and the hardships that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples have endured throughout Australia's history.

Picture what the future might hold through the spirit of true reconciliation, with the help of education, acknowledgement, and awareness, and share your vision with the people around you.

By being In This Together, you can help spread the message of reconciliation and a bright future for all Australians.
