Wominjeka 2017

A Welcome to Country for all University Staff and Students

A Wominjeka (Woi-wurrung word for Welcome) happens each year to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people and their Elders past and present, upon whose land we study and work, and to welcome and acknowledge Indigenous students and staff. All members of the University community and the general public are invited to Wominjeka.

The format will be some words from the Vice-Chancellor Glyn Davis, Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony from Aunty Di Kerr, speakers representing the staff and student body, guest speaker Professor Shaun Ewen, dancers, and a special Didjerido performance by Kiernan Ironfield, Murrup Barak's team leader for Indigenous Student success.
