I give my deep respect and acknowledgement to the original people of this land and country, where I live, dream and raise my family today, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. 

I recognise and respect all original peoples of this sacred land, past, present and future, whose natural law remains intact and suveran. Always was & always will be the originee's land. And I will live in accordance to this living law. 

Id like to acknowledge that all natural people born onto and  living apon the planet Earth, our natural habitat, we are all indeed original people coming from original cultures. Our cooperation, respect and understanding is vital to create peace on this special planet.
