Womin Djeka!

'Wominjeka' means 'welcome' in the Woi wurrung language of the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin nation. RMIT University acknowledges the people of the Woi wurrung and Boon wurrung language groups of the eastern Kulin Nations on whose unceded lands we conduct the business of the University. RMIT University respectfully acknowledges their Ancestors and Elders, past and present.

Watch traditional owner Aunty Di explain, as she welcomes you to Wurundjeri Country.
