Our collective family at Hewitt, both today and for generations before, were born, were raised, explored, and contributed to the development of many places and communities across Australia. These lands hold special significance as the ancestral territories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language groups and peoples, many of whom our ancestors worked alongside throughout history.
In recognition of this, we respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and their enduring connections to the land, sea, and community. We also honour the ongoing cultural, spiritual, and educational practices of First Nations people and express gratitude for their continuing dedication to caring for this land.
We commit to upholding and honouring these values into the future. We commit to strengthening historical ties by seeking to advance our nation collectively. And we commit to walk together towards reconciliation, side by side on this land, addressing the issues that can bring us closer as a nation.
