ANZSIL Perspective acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and to their Elders past, present and emerging.

ANZSIL Perspective acknowledges ngā iwi Māori as the tangata whenua of Aotearoa New Zealand, and affirms its ongoing commitment to the principles and spirit of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
