We pay respect to the Elders – past present and emerging.

We gratefully acknowledge that we gather on Country on which First Nations people have performed age old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal.

We acknowledge the living culture and its unique role in the life of the region.

The members of a working group to select Wiradjuri names and descriptions met for the first time to discuss the Wiradjuri Wayfinding for the Wagga Wagga Health Service (WWHS) Redevelopment Stage 3 project.

The working group includes representatives of Wagga Wagga Local Aboriginal Land Council, Aunty Jeans, Mawang Gaway Consultative Group, Wirajduri Elders, Charles Sturt University Wiradjuri Language Culture and Heritage program, and staff from Murrumbidgee Local Health District.

The group meets again in August following lthe initial discussions about appropriate Wiradjuri words and descriptions for the new health facility.

Thursday 30 April 2020
As part of the Stage 3 project, a number of designated spaces in the new Stage 3 building will have names and descriptions in the Wiradjuri language. 

The selection of Wiradjuri as the language for the signage is in recognition that the Wagga Wagga Health Service is on Wiradjuri land and that it is the language of First Nations people. 

It is about finding a way to make people feel welcome and comfortable, where the Wiradjuri language is respected and valued. The initiative is also in recognition of Murrumbidgee Local Health District's  commitment to Aboriginal cultural practices.
