Aboriginal cultural protocols

Aboriginal cultural protocols at Transport are ways of being and working with Aboriginal people, within the work environment and in community settings.

By being open to learning and understanding Aboriginal culture, we will become more skilled at engaging with our Aboriginal customers, colleagues and communities. We understand that due to our country’s history, everyone’s understanding of Aboriginal culture is at a different level.

Transport’s Aboriginal Cultural Protocols document is designed to strengthen our ability to engage with Aboriginal stakeholders. It includes guidance on Aboriginal values and meeting protocols, words and terms to avoid when working with Aboriginal people, respectful ways to engage and obtain consent from Aboriginal stakeholders, and how and when to include a Welcome to Country or Acknowledgement of Country.

Download the Aboriginal Cultural Protocols document to find out more.

You can also find ideas on how to do a Welcome to Country and Acknowledgement of Country on the portal.
