On Country

Experience the continual ingenuity, culture and living history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and the Indigenous peoples of the world.

Womin Djeka (Welcome)

Womin Djeka means 'to come with purpose' and is used as a greeting in the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung language groups of the Eastern Kulin Nation, the Traditional owners of the lands on Naarm (Melbourne).

Build your connection to Country, its history and impact on modern society with a range of Indigenous activities, engagements and resources.

Whether it’s through an online microcredential or discovering places of significance at RMIT campuses and around Melbourne, your studies will be enriched by deepening your understanding and strengthening your relationship with Australia's First Nations peoples.
