City Of Whittlesea

We aim to enhance our ability to achieve the best possible opportunities and outcomes with our Aboriginal communities. Through respect, self determination, equity, justice and partnerships, in accordance with RAP guidelines.

In 2001 the City of Whittlesea adopted the following Statement of Commitment to Reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people: On behalf of the City of Whittlesea we recognise the rich Indigenous heritage of this country and acknowledge the Wurundjeri Willum Clan as the traditional custodians of this place.

Our Reconciliation Action Plan contains the actions that support this statement and our commitments for the future. In acknowledging the Wurundjeri Willum Clan as the Traditional Owners of the land within which the City of Whittlesea is located, we recognise them as the first peoples in Australia and having a relationship with this land that reaches back tens of thousands of years – Wurundjeri people say since the beginning of time. While the RAP looks to the future of a growing municipality, it acknowledges that the City of Whittlesea is an old place with an old and existing culture that can be celebrated and shared by everyone.
