At Mitcham Social, we are deeply committed to the journey of reconciliation with the Indigenous communities of Australia. We acknowledge the historical injustices and the enduring impact of colonization on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Our commitment to reconciliation is a firm pledge to address these issues, foster understanding, and work towards a more inclusive and harmonious society.
We recognize and pay our utmost respect to the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live, cook, grow, and create. This acknowledgment is a critical component of our commitment to reconciliation, as we strive to learn from the wisdom and cultural traditions of the Indigenous communities.
Our commitment extends to acknowledging the Drink Elders, both past and present, who have dedicated their lives to preserving their culture and passing it down through the generations. Their stories, knowledge, and traditions are invaluable contributions to the rich tapestry of Australia’s cultural heritage.
Reconciliation is not just a one-time acknowledgment but a continuous and evolving process. We aim to create a more inclusive and respectful environment where Indigenous voices and perspectives are amplified and celebrated. We are dedicated to fostering cultural awareness, addressing historical injustices, and promoting a deeper connection to the land and its people.
Through this commitment, we strive to contribute to a future where reconciliation is not just a goal but a lived reality, where all Australians can come together in mutual respect and understanding. We recognize that reconciliation is a shared journey, and we are determined to walk this path with sincerity and dedication.
