Welcome To Country
Beyond the Valley is extremely privileged and proud to support the Wadawurrung Traditional Custodians in delivering a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony to mark the start of our four day camping festival.
The protocol of welcoming those who are visiting country has always been an element of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, whether that be for welcoming other nations who had been given permission to enter the welcoming nation, or for recognising and celebrating culture to welcome non-Indigenous people to land.
We ask all to be present for the welcoming ceremony as a way of paying respects to the land and the traditional owners of our temporary home. Attending a Welcome to Country expresses to the traditional custodians your recognition, as a festival patron, that Barunah Plains, surrounding landscapes and the entire Australian continent always was and always will be Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander land.
Barry Gilson - Proud Wadawurrung Man: What Welcome To Country means
“A Welcome to Country is a time honoured ceremony. It is a bestowing upon the visitors that is a rite of passage allowing all access to waterways and food sources. The ceremony is a peaceful experience and is the coming together of two cultures. It allows us to relearn, in togetherness, what was already learned. This is important so that we can heal this planet and understand the beauty of the past and strive as one towards understanding and healing. It gives us the opportunity to enjoy what we have into the future and protect forevermore the animals, the plants and the riverways. The Wadawurrung peoples believe that the smoke in a smoking ceremony cleanses the body and strengthens an individual's connection to the land. It is conducted in honour of Tharangalk “The Gum Leaf Country”.
Beyond The Valley acknowledges the importance of a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony, we offer thanks and pay respect to the Wadawurrung peoples for providing this opportunity and for welcoming us to their land. As an event group, we will respect the land and to the best of our ability return it as we have found it. We hope that as patrons of Beyond the Valley Festival you will support us in that goal through being considerate and understanding of the importance of the land that you will walk on. We also hope to see you present at our Welcome to Country and following ceremonies, to pay your respect to the Wadawurrung peoples and their elders past and present.
