Acknowledgement of Country
Smoking Ceremony - Midsumma Pride March 2020
Midsumma acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians are the first peoples of these lands. We pay our respects to all First Nation Australians, past, present and emerging, and we recognise their continuing spiritual and cultural connection to the land. We would like to acknowledge that Aboriginal sovereignty has not been ceded.
Midsumma Festival occurs across the Kulin Nations on the lands of Boon Wurrung, Taungurung, Dja Dja Wurrung, Wathaurong and Wurundjeri (Woiwurrung) peoples.
Midsumma Festival takes place between High Summer and Late Summer according to the Wurundjeri calendar of seasons, on whose land much of this Festival is taking place.
