Acknowledging Indigenous Lands: Embracing Diversity and Heritage

In our quest to honor the rich diversity of our nation, we proudly acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands on which we work and broadcast. JOY understands that we operate on the ancestral lands of the Yalukit-Willam Clan, belonging to the Boon Wurrung Peoples.

These ancestral lands hold deep cultural significance and have been cared for and inhabited by Indigenous communities for countless generations. It is important for us to recognize and respect this enduring connection to the land.

Furthermore, we extend our acknowledgement to all traditional owners and custodians of lands throughout Australia. We pay our heartfelt respects to the elders, those who have paved the way for future generations, and those who continue to preserve and share their cultural heritage.

In addition to recognizing the traditional owners, JOY also pays tribute to the brotherboys and sistergirls of the LGBTIQA+ Community. We believe in fostering an inclusive community that embraces diversity in all its forms.

By acknowledging the traditional custodians of the land and embracing the heritage and diversity that exists within our society, we aim to create a platform that celebrates, respects, and amplifies the voices of those who have often been marginalized or overlooked.

As a broadcasting organization, JOY is committed to promoting understanding, cultural exchange, and inclusivity. By acknowledging the traditional owners and embracing our diverse society, we hope to contribute to a stronger and more harmonious future for all Australians.

Let us work together to build a society that values and respects the rich tapestry of cultures, histories, and traditions woven into the fabric of our nation.
