Traditional Aboriginal welcome

Welcome to Country from Associate Professor Simon Forrest

A welcome to country ceremony is a traditional Aboriginal blessing, symbolising the traditional owners’ consent to an event taking place on their land. Curtin acknowledges the Nyungar people as the traditional owners of the land on which our main campus is sited and a welcome to country is performed at all major Curtin public events.
