Translation

This is Darug lands It is the land of our ancestors. Their spirits still walk among us. Spirits that have been here since the dreaming. Darug language has been passed down from generation to generation. To continue an unbroken culture. That has extended for thousands of years. In the language of the Darug people we welcome you to Darug lands.

Thankyou

Aunty Edna Watson is a Darug Elder who has worked in our community for many years, this is her welcome to country.
