Acknowledging traditional owners
NAIDOC week, which ran from November 8th to 15th this year, celebrated the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Recent ADAPs have shown the plaques acknowledging the traditional owners at CASS sites across the country, and today's shows the corresponding plaque for the Kensington site in Perth. The five boomerangs symbolise the scientific opportunities, employment, education outreach, Indigenous knowledge and improving outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This original artwork design was commissioned by CSIRO and created by Marcus Lee, a proud Aboriginal descendant of the Karajarri people.
