Reconciliation

Web Site Usage Warning

Users of this website should be aware that in some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, seeing the names and photographs of deceased people may cause sadness and distress, particularly to relatives of those people.

Before using the reconciliation section of this web site in such communities, readers should establish what the wishes of senior community members are and take their advice on procedures and safeguards to be adopted.

Reconciliation in the City of Adelaide

The City of Adelaide is located on the traditional lands of the Kaurna people and Council acknowledges this through a Kaurna Acknowledgment as the first item of business at each Council meeting.

City of Adelaide acknowledges that we are meeting on the traditional country of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains and pays respect to Elders past and present.

We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land. We acknowledge that they are of continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today.

Council also acknowledges other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language groups in the City and works closely with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to advance reconciliation in the City.

For more information about reconciliation in the City, please contact our  Reconciliation Officer. 

Reconciliation Banners

‘In 2014, 4 Reconciliation Plaza flag poles were installed in Tarntanyangga / Victoria Square after the Reconciliation Committee of City of Adelaide identified an opportunity to add to the suite of reconciliation activities contained in City of Adelaide’s Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan 2015- 2018.

The Reconciliation Plaza flag poles are designated solely for the purpose of creating public awareness and celebration of Aboriginal Culture in Tarntanyangga / Victoria Square.

In May 2016, City of Adelaide committed to working with Warriapendi School to create 4 Reconciliation banners to be flown at the entrance and exit points of Reconciliation Plaza, Tarntanyangga / Victoria Square.

The dedication of the Reconciliation Plaza flag poles to banners creating public awareness and celebration of Aboriginal Culture all year round underlines the firm commitment of City of Adelaide to reconciliation in our City.’
