Darug Tribe to regain recognition as traditional owners of Blacktown

393 Signatures Goal: 500

The Blacktown City Council no longer acknowledges the Darug people as the traditional owners of the land upon which it sits.

A recent policy decision has suspended the recognitionof the Darug people as the continuing traditional custodians of the land, this has been done without consultation with the Darug community.

This political indecency has outraged many members of the Darug community who are calling for the reversal of this controversial decision by Council.


Please sign, comment and share to raise awareness of this wrong-doing and make Council accountable for their actions byhaving them bemade to reinstate policy which pays due respect to theDarug people as the continuing traditional custodians of the land they sit upon.

    The Council has by now re-recognised the Darug people I understand. Has the Darug museum been re-opened yet does anyone know?
