Acknowledgement of Country

In the spirit of reconciliation, Holmesglen recognises and celebrates the Traditional Owners of the lands throughout Victoria and beyond on which we educate and train. We pay our respects to Elders past and present and acknowledge our emerging leaders.

Our work here at Holmesglen is education, to share and pass knowledge on to those who seek to gain it and we recognise the long-standing tradition of teaching and learning that has played such a great part in over 60,000 years of Australian culture.

This guide provides a broad introduction to the scholarly and general resources available through Holmesglen Library about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, and cultures. It also contains links to reputable First Nations materials publicly available on the internet. Books and ebooks written by First Nations authors have been highlighted in this guide.
