Our Vision for Reconciliation KU Children’s Services acknowledges and values the cultural histories, heritages and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Our vision is a future where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are recognised as being the First Nations people of Australia. Where all Australians embrace the Elders past, present and future for the wisdom and knowledge they hold and share, and support emerging leaders in local communities. KU is contributing to an Australia where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, children and families feel a sense of belonging and strong connections with community and country; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ cultural identity is respected and they are comfortable in their surroundings; and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are recognised and nurtured as the creators, thinkers and doers of today and tomorrow.
