INDIGENOUS ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

 

APO recognises the historical and cultural significance of Australia’s Indigenous history and the role it plays in contemporary society.

Each day in Australia we all walk on Indigenous land.

We therefore acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land we occupy at our Hawthorn office, the Wurundjeri people, and pay respect to Elders past and present, including those from other clans who now reside on Wurundjeri land.
