Acknowledgement of Country
Karinya – an aboriginal word meaning ‘peaceful home’
Karinya House recognises the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to own and control their cultures and pay our respect to these rights. Karinya House acknowledges, respects and seeks to learn from the diversity of Indigenous cultures, Indigenous world views, lifestyles and customary laws.
We extend our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who for thousands of years have preserved the cultures and practices of their communities on country.
This land was never surrendered, and we acknowledge that it always was and will continue to always be Aboriginal land.
