Felicity Ryan Ballet acknowledge Palawa/Tasmanian Aborigines as the original owners of this island Lutruwita/Tasmania.
(pah lah wah) (lu tru wee tah)
Our ballet classes take place at Nipaluna - the country at and around Hobart, the country of the Muwinina people.
(nee pah lu lah) (mu wee nee nah)
As we meet here, we honour those people and all the tribes of Lutruwita who are no longer here as a result of the
brutal invasion, and the Tasmanian Aboriginal community of today who remain owners of these lands.
We pledge to support Palawa/Tasmanian Aborigines to achieve Truth Telling and Treaty.
