Acknowledgement of country

The FMA proudly acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Peoples and Traditional Owners of the land and water on which we rely.

We acknowledge and respect that Aboriginal communities are steeped in traditions and customs built on an incredibly disciplined social and cultural order. This social and cultural order has sustained up to 50,000 years of existence.

We acknowledge the ongoing leadership role of the Aboriginal community. As First Peoples, they are best placed to determine a culturally appropriate path for support within their communities.
