Commitment to First Nations

Carclew, or Tutu Karralikanungku (Looking Out From Above) is situated on Kaurna land.

Carclew aims to embed Reconciliation into all that we do, which is expressed in our stretch Reconciliation Action Plan.

We also acknowledge the significance and importance of the Uluru Statement from the Heart; a powerful and unique statement of consensus from the many First Nations delegates at the Referendum Convention at Uluru on 26 May 2017. We pledge our support for the recognition of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Australian Constitution.
