Why are Land, sky and waters important?
The Yoorrook Justice Commission is looking into land, sky and waters as part of the truth telling process in Victoria.
First Peoples have been caring for country for thousands of generations. The history of Europeans coming to Victoria 200 years ago and taking First Peoples’ land is one of wrongdoing and devastating loss.
But it is also a story First Peoples’ resistance, survival and ongoing connection to country.
