The department proudly acknowledges Victoria's Aboriginal communities and their rich culture and pays respect to their Elders past and present.
We acknowledge Aboriginal people as Australia's first peoples and as the Traditional Owners and custodians of the land and water on which we rely.
We recognise and value the ongoing contribution of Aboriginal people and communities to Victorian life and how this enriches us.
We embrace the spirit of reconciliation, working towards the equality of outcomes and ensuring an equal voice.
