Each area has ceremonies significant to the Country you are on.
Lionel’s smoking ceremonies use three plants that are used in ritual on Bunurong/Boonwurrung County.
Properties of these plants protect guests both physically and spiritually.
A smoking can be used in welcome, celebration, birth, deaths, to cleanse bad energy and spirits.
A Welcome to Country (WTC) can only be done by someone who is a Traditional Owner (T.O) Country
(unless special permission is granted by the T.O’s)
A Welcome is an obligation to protect your guests both physically and spiritually. An Acknowledgement is an obligation to protect the people’s land and water you are on.
