3. Your Centre - culturally appropriate
Look at your Centre from an Aboriginal perspective and ask yourself the following questions:
Talk to local Aboriginal organisations about days of significance to them. Ask how you can support them by having these days recognised and acknowledged.
Ensure the Aboriginal flag is visible at your centre especially during NAIDOC and other special occasions.
Always acknowledge Aboriginal people as the traditional owners of the land and acknowledge the presence of Elders if appropriate.
Ensure you have an understanding of the history of colonisation and its effect on Aboriginal people.
If you need assistance developing policies and procedures contact Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council, other Aboriginal organisations or your Service Peak Body.
