WELCOME TO COUNTRY TOOLKIT
A Welcome to Country is performed by an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander custodian, or elder from the local region, welcoming people to their land. This may be done through speech, song, dance or ceremony. It is an important cultural performance and helps non-Indigenous people recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island culture and history.
If an elder is not available, an Acknowledgement of Country may be performed by anyone, Indigenous or non-Indigenous, to pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the land, both past and present.
