About the Moreland Yarning Circle
Moreland Reconciliation Initiative is the organiser of Moreland Yarning Circle.
We are a small group of Moreland residents who believe Aboriginal cultures and history are important to our identity as a diverse community and believe in social justice, equity and self-determination.
This events takes place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
All welcome. From people who are starting to learn about Aboriginal history to those who are active in reconciliation, Aboriginal and Torres Strait and non-Aboriginal people. This network is about connecting to each other and inspiring respectful action.
