voice to Parliament and January 26 Statements

26 January each year is a day of great sadness for many First Nations people, who never rightfully handed over, gave up or sold this land.
On January 26, CERES encourages understanding, recognition and respect for the history and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
If you’d like a quiet space to sit and reflect today, our Namalata Willem cultural space is always open to visit for quiet contemplation.

The Uluru Statement from the Heart calls for ‘Voice, Treaty and Truth’. CERES affirms our support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart and the ‘yes’ position in the referendum.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woiwurrung people of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the land on which CERES stands. We are deeply grateful to Elders, past and present, for their care and protection of these lands over millennia.
