the drum respectfully acknowledges the peoples of the Wurundjeri language group as Traditional Owners of the land where we deliver programs and services, both virtual and in person.

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders as the first people of Australia. Sovereignty was never ceded and and treaties were never signed and the First Nation peoples remain strong in their connection to country and culture. We and the those participating in our events reside on Kulin nation land and sometimes beyond. We acknowledge the constant resistance and resilience of First Nations people against ongoing colonisation.

Always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
Please consider donating to support First nations folk such as Pay the Rent.

the drum stands with the #TorresStrait8 in their efforts of Climate Justice and the centering of Indigenous knowledge and methods in this effort.  Zenadth Kes (the Torres Strait Islands) is suffering from king tides, coral bleaching and cyclones , caused by climate change, that threaten the homes and culture of Torres Strait Islander people and the government’s continual refusal to address the crisis. Read more about this cause at Our Islands, Our Home.
