..Welcome to the land of the Wurundjeri people. The Wurundjeri are known as the Manna Gum people and it is our custom to invite people to share in this ceremony. These leaves are offered to you, take a leaf and you are welcome to everything from the tops of the trees to the roots of the earth. It means that we become linked symbolically and also that you join with us to honour the spirits of our ancestors who have nurtured this very land for many, many thousand of years. My language is the Woiworrung language ...You are most welcome to the traditional land of the Wurundjeri people.
