Ninna Marni?

We would like to acknowledge this land that we meet on is the traditional lands for Kaurna people and that we respect their spiritual relationship with their country.  We also acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the Adelaide region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.
