Web Site Usage Warning
Elder Park Celebration Users of the Adelaide City Council Reconciliation website should be aware that in some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, seeing the names and photographs of deceased people may cause sadness and distress, particularly to relatives of those people.
Before using the reconciliation section of this web site in such communities, readers should establish what the wishes of senior community members are and take their advice on procedures and safeguards to be adopted.
Reconciliation in the City of Adelaide
The City of Adelaide is located on the traditional lands of the Kaurna people and Council acknowledges this through a Kaurna Acknowledgment as the first item of business at each Council meeting.
Adelaide City Council acknowledges that we are meeting on the traditional country of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains and pays respect to Elders past and present.
We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land. We acknowledge that they are of continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today.
Council also acknowledges other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language groups in the City and works closely with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to advance reconciliation in the City.
For more information about reconciliation in the City, please contact our Aboriginal Project Officer.
