Here in Modewarre at the Mt Moriac Reserve we gather on country on which members and elders of the local indigenous community and their forbears have been custodians for many centuries and on which aboriginal people have performed age-old ceremonies of celebration, initiation, and renewal.
We the Modewarre Football Club would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where we gather on today.
The people who had lived, played, hunted and fought on this land. The WADAWURRONG people of the Kulin nation.
We would like to recognise and pay our respects to their past and present elders and ancestors. We give thanks for their care to country and their sacrifices so that we can enjoy this beautiful country we call home.
