National NAIDOC Week 2023
"For Our Elders"
2-9 July 2023
At Urban Road, we acknowledge and pay respects to the people of the Yugambeh language region of the Gold Coast and all their descendants both past and present. We also acknowledge the many Aboriginal people from other regions as well as Torres Strait and South Sea Islander people who now live in the local area and have made an important contribution to the community.
We acknowledge all First Peoples of the beautiful lands on which we live and celebrate their enduring knowledge and connections to the Country. We honour the wisdom of and pay respect to Elders past and present.
Across every generation, our Elders have played, and continue to play, an important role and hold a prominent place in our communities and families. They are cultural knowledge holders, trailblazers, nurturers, advocates, teachers, survivors, leaders, hard workers and our loved ones.
Our loved ones who pick us up in our low moments and celebrate us in our high ones. Who cook us a feed to comfort us and pull us into line, when we need them to. They guide our generations and pave the way for us to take the paths we can take today. Guidance, not only through generations of advocacy and activism but in everyday life and how to place ourselves in the world.
Celebrate with us, and enjoy statement Indigenous Artwork in your home.
