Warndu has added Traditional Country Names as First Nations Country so you can acknowledge the land you live on. Warndu is an Aboriginal Owned and Family run business which operates from Ngadjuri land which is in South Australia.
Last year (2020) to mark NAIDOC week Auspost added Traditional Land Names to postage package - YAY!
Our mates at Magpie Goose another amazing Indigenous business have been promoting this and following their lead we added First Nations Country to addresses.
HINT you can add the First Nations Country name to the address 2 field on any package with Auspost!
All packages from Warndu come from Ngadjuri land and now you can add your First Nations Country Name as well!
How to add / How to find your place name
To acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land your item is being delivered on, you can include those place names in the address field. When sending items you can include a Traditional Place name in either the address you’re sending from, or in the recipient’s address.
To find Traditional Place names, check AIATSIS, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Land Councils, or Cultural Centres in your local area.
Remember that due to the pervasive nature of colonisation in Australia, some areas might be disputed or traditional ownership uncertain. You're welcome to put a few traditional names down - better to acknowledge more than acknowledge none!
Help Rachel get Traditional Place Names as part of a standard address by signing this petition
- place names to be made part of the official address information in Australia, the same as postcodes and street names.
- Australia Post to collate a comprehensive and accurate database of traditional place names, by consulting with Elders and First Nations knowledge holders on each Country.
Warndu added First Nations Country to our packages in October 2021, in the period from October - December 2021 16% of our community acknowledged the traditional owners.
Thanks to our Warndu Community for taking action to pay respect.
