We, at Muslim Women Australia, acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional owners of the land on which we stand, and pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging. We recognise the rich cultural heritage of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and the importance of preserving their connection to the land.
We also recognise the indigenous people of Palestine. The history and struggles of the Palestinian people are deeply rooted, and we acknowledge their enduring connection to their land, as well as their ongoing pursuit of justice and self-determination.
In recognising both the traditional custodians of this land, Australia, and the indigenous people of Palestine, we acknowledge the importance of understanding and respecting the histories, cultures, and rights of all indigenous communities. It is a reminder that we should strive for a world where diversity is celebrated, and the rights of all indigenous peoples are upheld.
