Gadigal of the Eora Nation

The Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore, releases a Statement acknowledging the Gadigal of the Eora Nation as the ‘traditional custodians of the place we now call Sydney’. She concedes that the ‘invasion’ had far reaching and devastating impact of the occupation and appropriation of Indigenous land. In a separate paragraph she notes that the use of the word ‘invasion’ follows the insistence on its use by the Aboriginal Advisory Panel and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
