The RANZCP would like to acknowledge the Kulin nation as the Traditional Custodians of the lands upon which IMiA 2023 will be held. We recognise and acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional owners and custodians of Australia, and their continuing spiritual connection to land and sea. We value the culture, history and traditions that are important components of the identity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples. We acknowledge that these essential elements contribute to the social and emotional well-being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In recognition that The RANZCP is a bi-national College, we also acknowledge Maori as tangata whenua and Treaty of Waitangi partners in Aotearoa New Zealand.
