The publishers and editors wish to acknowledge the many Aboriginal nations across Australia whose land this issue has been produced on. Specifically, the production has taken place on the land + waters of the Kulin Nation (the Wurundjeri, Boonwurrung, Taungurong, Djajawurrung and the Wathaurung groups) around the area now known as Melbourne, and on the land + waters of the Wangal and Gadigal peoples around the area now known as Sydney. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded.
