Welcome to Country and Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners

The following resource, created by NATSICC (National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Catholic Council), in partnership with the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference, explains the difference between a ‘Welcome to Country’ and ‘Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners’.

Acknowledgement of Country

The below ‘Acknowledgement of Country’ was created by Catholic Education Melbourne in January 2020. This PowerPoint resource is downloadable for use at your school and in your RE classroom, as a means of demonstrating respect for the traditional custodians of the land.
