Welcome to country =
‘Welcome to Country’ is an important ceremony by Aboriginal people and inviting them to perform it helps non-Indigenous people recognise Aboriginal culture and history. An ‘Acknowledgement of Country’ can be done by everyone, Indigenous or non-Indigenous, to pay respect to the fact that one is on Aboriginal land. – creativespirits.info
Stop confusing Welcome to Country with Acknowledgement of Country. They are not the same thing. – @LukeLPearson
Stop confusing Welcome to Country with Acknowledgement of Country. They are not the same thing.
Also, don’t acknowledge soldiers or settlers or anyone other than local mob when doing an Acknowledgement of Country.

“Aboriginal people are different, we have kinship systems, beliefs about ancestors, ancient design traditions, our ancestors have been here for 65,000 years. We have ways of doing things that are very relevant to the modern world,” @marcialangton on Welcome To Country #TheDrum pic.twitter.com/3DgEMStbmx
