Aboriginal people have been on this land for over 60,000 years, have never surrendered their claims to sovereignty, have never sold their country and have never lost a war. Aboriginal people still live on this land. We must acknowledge that they are sovereign owners of this land. It is only on the basis of this acknowledgement that we can negotiate our continued presence on this land and become a civilized people.
This is why it is important to acknowledgment of the traditional owners of this land is so important.
Wurundjeri and Aboriginal plaques are available through our web shop or by calling 9419 3613!
ANTaR Victoria sells acknowledgment plaques (pictured below) for use on office doors, on school, university, residential and farm buildings and fences, on municipal properties, business premises etc.
We sell acknowledgement plaques with the agreement of the Traditional Owners of the Woiwurrung / Wurundjeri peoples of the greater Melbourne region.
These plaques are made of metal and are available in small & large sizes (14cm x 22cm and 30cm x 45cm)
We are also trialling a plaque for use in other areas of Victoria where agreement on boundaries has not been reached by Traditional Owner groups. The wording for the plaque acknowledging Aboriginal people as the traditional owners, pictured below, has the endorsement of the Victorian Corporation for Aboriginal Languages. These plaques are being introduced an an interim measure and should not be seen to replace acknowledgement that names specific Tradional Owner groups. We will continue to develop specific plaques for particular Tradional Owner groups wherever possible.
If any one would like to develop a plaque along these lines, in consultation with the local Traditional Owners , please contact ANTaR Victoria.
