Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners
Knox City Council acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people and Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation as Traditional Custodians of the land in Knox.
We pay respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders, past and present, who have resided in the area and have been an integral part of the region’s histories.
Aboriginal community in Knox
The Knox Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities come from a variety of different nations within Australia including the Torres Strait, the Traditional Custodians and Stolen Generation.
Knox has many places of historic significance to the Kulin Nation. Important cultural and historical sites within Knox hold both the traditional knowledge of the First Nations peoples and the traumatic stories of colonisation.
Reconciliation Action Plan
The Reconciliation Action Plan (2023 to 2025) was developed in conversation with a working group of Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Bunurong Elders and our local First Nations communities.
The plan outlines six key areas to focus future efforts and collaboration over 2 years:
- recognition and respect
- cultural heritage
- health and wellbeing
- civic participation
- employment and economic development
- voice and governance.
