Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People

The City of Kwinana has taken many steps in recent years towards acknowledging the City's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture, including building community partnerships, honouring their history through public artworks, and more symbolic protocols such as continually flying the Aboriginal Flag.

    Conciliation Action Plan

    The City launched its Conciliation Action Plan in March 2019. The Plan outlines the future vision for conciliation between the City of Kwinana and the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities as partners.

    While other council refer to this plan as ‘reconciliation’, consultation with the City’s advisory group suggested the name ‘conciliation’ better describes the journey we’re taking together.

    The Conciliation Action Plan was created from a series of meetings to seek community aspirations for conciliation. Feedback focused on key desires – relationships, respect and opportunities.
