We would like to Acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which our Deakin University campuses are located: the Wadawurrung people, the Boon Wurrung people, the Wurundjeri people, and the Gunditjmara people. We acknowledge that the lands on which Deakin campuses reside were places of age-old ceremonies, of celebration, initiation and renewal, and that the local Aboriginal peoples have had and continue to have, a unique role in the life of these lands.
We also pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff and students who join us at Deakin University and will always be mindful and respectful that our First Nations people are the Traditional Custodians of this country.
This guide is designed to provide a list of resources to support academics in integrating into course curricula Indigenous perspectives around Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (Indigenous Australian) knowledge, cultures and histories.
