Acknowledgement of Country

On the lands that we study, we walk, and we live, we acknowledge and respect the traditional custodians and cultural knowledge holders of these lands.

We acknowledge that Country for Aboriginal peoples is an interconnected set of ancient and sophisticated relationships. The Ƶapp of Ƶapp spreads across many interrelated Aboriginal Countries that are bound by this sacred landscape, and intimate relationship with that landscape since creation.

From Sydney to the Southern Highlands, to the South Coast. From fresh water to bitter water to salt. From City to Urban to Rural.

The Ƶapp of Ƶapp Acknowledges the Custodianship of the Aboriginal peoples of this place and space that has kept alive the relationships between all living things.

The Ƶapp Acknowledges the devastating impact of colonisation on our campuses' footprint and commit ourselves to truth-telling, healing and education 

Throughout the website are elements of Indigenous digital art. These elements join together and create a visually stunning piece, titled Collective Journey: Weaving Indigenous Futures, which has been designed specifically for the Indigenous Strategy and Engagement Unit by Brittney Angus, a respected Wiradjuri and Ngunnawal woman and distinguished UOW graduate. You can learn more about this beautiful piece of art on the Indigenous Education and Engagement page.

Our commitment

The Ƶapp of Ƶapp is committed to Indigenous advancement and strives to create culturally safe campuses for our staff students and communities. Our current Indigenous Education and Engagement Strategy provides an overarching framework that illuminates the Ƶapp’s commitment to an accountable, transparent way forward to progress the outcomes for and with our Indigenous staff, students, communities, and partners.
