Leichhardt Municipal Council has a long history and association with the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) communities within the Leichhardt Local Government Area (LGA).
Council is committed to the Principles of Reconciliation always ensuring that the process is based on respect, trust and a spirit of openness.
Council acknowledges and accepts that our community is made up of many different people from all spheres of life who have made the Leichhardt LGA their home and bring with them their own uniqueness.
Building relationships with the local Aboriginal community enhances the living experience of our residents, businesses and general community members, and promotes Reconciliation through better understanding. Read Leichhardt Council's Principles of Cooperation and Reconciliation Statement.
Consultation is essential to the development of meaningful relationships. Read the Buidling Better Futures (PDF 4.9MB) document which promotes an understating of important protocols when working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures.
