Living Culture acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the first Australians and recognise that they have a unique relationship with the land and water. We also recognise the Mornington Peninsula is home to the Boon Wurrung / Bunurong members of the Kulin Nation, who have lived here for thousands of years and who have traditional connections and responsibilities for the land we walk on.
We pay our respects to all Elders past & present.
Thank you to our Kin, Sponsors, and Supporters
This land has always been protected by the creator Bunjil who travels as an eagle and by Wah who protects the waterways and travels as a crow. Bunjil taught the Boonwurrung to always welcome guests. This lore is still practiced today by the custodians and protectors of this land. He required that the Boonwurrung would ask all visitors to make two promises:
To obey the laws of Bunjil
Not to harm the children or the land of Bunjil
This lore is still practiced today by the custodians and protectors of this land.
