|Who We Are|
Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal peoples of this country are divided because the land in which we live was seized from the Aboriginal people without their consent. Since then Aboriginal people have suffered an erosion of their culture, destruction of their traditional way of life, and systematic attempts to eliminate them as separate races.
Geelong One Fire Reconciliation Group aims to foster and promote reconciliation in the region. “One Fire” reflects our desire to achieve the meeting of people “around the fire” in mutual respect and understanding.
Our objectives are to consult with Aboriginal Elders and community to develop policies, recommendations and action plans in pursuit of the following:
The group meets on the 3rd Tuesday evening of each month at 7.30pm, at the Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-operative, Morgan Street, North Geelong.
2013 meeting dates at the Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-op: 19th March, 21st May, 16th July, 17th September, 19th November(AGM). All are open meetings, for project discussion & planning.
2013 Movie Dates at the Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-op: 19th February, 16th April, 18th June, 20th August, 15th October. See our blog at - http://geelongonefire.blogspot.com.au
Our 'Reconciliation in the Park' event will be on Sunday 2nd June. Thanks to City of Greater Geelong funding our plans are already developing in partnership with the Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-op.
