Our commitment to First Nations

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

First Nations voices and values are at the centre of all we do​. We respect ​ongoing connections to Country and cherish our place on Kaurna land. Carclew aims to embed Reconciliation into all that we do.

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.

Regarding 26 January, Carclew acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people still experience the ongoing effects and the impact of colonisation over 200 years later. On this day, Carclew staff will be encouraged to further educate themselves about the true history of this Country, reflect on the resilience and survival of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culture and experience and the thriving legacy of the oldest living culture in the world. We encourage staff and all Australians to consider what more we can do to support Aboriginal Australia including showing up and supporting Invasion/Survival Day services and rallies.
