Welcome To Country
In traditional Aboriginal society, visitors would request permission to visit or pass through the country of another family group. Their request was met with a response, known as a Welcome to Country, which is still performed today, and is the responsibility of a Traditional Owner.
In this region, all Traditional Owners are represented by Barengi Gadjin Land Council. We represent all those recognised as Traditional Owners under the Native Title Consent Determination, from the Wotjobaluk, Jaadwa, Jadawadjali, Wergaia, and Jupagulk people.
Services we provide are as follows:
- Welcome to Country
- Smoking Ceremony
- Dance Ceremony
- Cultural Presentation
*** There are protocols in place for booking any of our Cultural Services and approaching Elders or anyone else yourself goes against them, so please fill out the form below and let us do it the right way. If there is someone in particular you would like for your Cultural Service you can put in a request on the back of the form and we will see what we can do to help you out.*** Thank you
