Acknowledgement of Country
The Northern Territory Government respectfully acknowledges the First Nations people of this country and recognises their continuing connections to their lands, waters and communities. We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and to their leaders past, present and emerging.
While this website uses the term ‘Aboriginal’, we respectfully acknowledge that Torres Strait Islander peoples are First Nations people living in the Northern Territory. Therefore, strategies, services and outcomes relating to ‘Aboriginal’ Territorians should be read to include both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Territorians.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are advised that this website may contain images, voices and names of deceased people.
The artwork that forms the basis for the design of this website was created by Elaina Tilmouth an Aboriginal student in the Northern Territory.
The artwork depicts the sun rising over the ocean and reflects the start of a new journey.
We gratefully acknowledge Elaine for allowing us to use her artwork on this website.
