CHIFVC acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as Australia’s First Peoples and the Traditional Owners of the lands, waterways and skies where we live, work and play. We celebrate that this is the oldest continuous living culture in the world, and that sovereignty was never ceded. This always was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
Across the Central Highlands region, we acknowledge Wurundjeri, Wadawurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung, Djab Wurrung, Eastern Marr and Wotjobaluk peoples, and pay respect to elders past and present.
