Acknowledgement of Country

Aboriginal people have always lived in the place we now call Sydney. AGHS recognises Aboriginal people as the traditional custodians of this land and acknowledges the Eora Nation of coastal Sydney and the Dharug Nation of western Sydney whose lands we will be exploring, virtually, through the conference presentations. We acknowledge all clan groups and their Elders, past and present.
